    Hi guys, keen novice here. Bought this as a small half dead plant last year in a bargain basket somewhere for 25p. It picked up and has developed hundreds of tiny whitish flower buds and has spread like mad, tendrils wrap around anything it touches. I've searched all over the net but can't get a match pertaining to the sharp lobed leaves on my plant. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi @Geordiewardy welcome to GC.

    Unfortunately the photos are not very clear and a closer view of the leaves would help but it looks as though it may be a Clematis. There's an enormous variety of Clematis. :noidea:

    I am thinking perhaps a Jasmine.

    Would love to see clear sharp pic to show the leaves and a flower. Look like Clematis.
    I have tried to lighten image.

      Sure I used to have an early flowering Clematis many years ago that looked like that, not one with big showy flowers, but with small nodding blooms.

          That's exactly what it is, searched on and off for months and never came across it. Thanks Nigel

          Leaves look a good match.
          But we need to see the flower to see if Clematis cartmanii is perfect match.
