Clematis occidentalis var. grosseserrata

Western blue virginsbower- Though it looks like this flower has no sepals, in actuality it has very inconspicuous petals. The usual greenish bracts beneath the petals are the showy colored parts here while underneath is rather bare. A trait also shared with others in this same family including Anemone.
