HOW FAR CAN IT GROW?

I have posted about this clematis before but this year it's performance has astonished me.  The cool summer has really made this plant a "happy plant."  It is planted at the base of a Tuteur and each winter I cut it to the ground.  It grows up the Tuteur and reaches out towards the picket fence as it gets longer.  This year I have measured a total of 28 feet in length!  The vines just keep growing and growing.  My only regret is that I do not know the name or variety of this clematis.  It has delicate flowers,  blooms prolifically and is a delight to see every day.  I hope you enjoy the photos of this lovely vine.
