    Looks like it might be Clematis armandii. You can see some shots of it on my website at http://www.botanicalstockphotos.com/photos-clematis-species-1425.htm . It’s pretty but also pretty vigorous.

    Also vigorous with huge root systems.

    Smilax…. In the old south the vines were used around doorways during Christmas.
