Notes:

This vine seems very toxic. When I cut it with the lawn mower my eyes start burning and sinuses beome inflamed. Its like being exposed to tear gas.

    I think you have a japanese clematis. Possibly Sweet Autumn Bower. http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pdffiles/AG/AG31500.pdf
    It is reported that all parts of the plant are poisonious if ingested. I’ve suffered no ill affects from handling the plant or working around it. I have never mowed it but would quess the dust would be heavy in certain conditions. Proceed with caution would be my recommendation. Check the plant characteristics noted on this link http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/683/
