On Digadoo at Dignams Creek. I know this as Old man's beard.

It might be Clematis glycyphylla which flowers earlier than aristata. The photo of the leaves is not good enough to say which.

I did look at that but the leaves of this Clematis had pointy bits on its edge and the picture of glycyphylla seemed to have a smooth edging. I'll put up a hopefully better photo of the leaf.

Have added the leaf photo to this sighting - hope that helps.

I know glycinoides has just started flowering and I'm pretty sure aristata flowers a bit later. The business with toothed vs entire leaf margins is not a reliable feature to differentiate them. I go on leaf texture (thick for aristata, thin for glycinoides).
