Would this also be Clematis X ‘Jackmanii’?

Clematis ‘Rouge Cardinal’ (LL) ??

Thanks for the id.
These pictures were also taken in June,17.

I missed completing my sentence in the post.

Is this correct ?

difficult to judge from just the flowers. without knowing the pruning history etc

but the flowers of Clematis X ‘Jackmanii’ are multiples on the same branch, where as Clematis ‘Rouge Cardinal’ tends to be single flower on a twig/branch. both are deciduous, late season bloomers. both have similar sized flowers. that’s what I remember. also, this is supposed to be deep pink, though in my screen the color seems to be burgundy, hence the confusion may be, …

These flowers were few, not many.
The color of flowers is a deep dark pink.
The buds/flowers seem to be single on a branch.

Let me check for more pictures.

ok. just go click happy from now on. I do. then one can delete. its only expense is time taken in deleting
