Snowdrift Evergreen Clematis

Clematis armandii 'Snowdrift'

I’m hoping to train this evergreen along the base sunroom wall which could really use some disguising. Also I had high hopes for the Holboellia sausage vine growing underneath the sunroom but so far it’s not grown much (root or topside) in the 2 years it’s been in the ground, so I’m hedging my bets and planting this as a quasi-replacement. Another note, the nursery tag claims it’s only hardy to 15F, whereas great plant picks pegs it as a zone 7. I hope great plant picks is more right given I lost a few zone-8 hardy plants this last winter.
