Still got two that I can't figure out.

8A Pure as the unfolding flower. (9) ???H?A?E?

I assumed the "unfolding flower" was an opening bud and put INCHOATED, but I suppose it may be something to do with a river estuary or delta. Now the problem is compounded as the second letter of this answer is also the second letter of 3D.

3D Patsy called out for support (7)

If INCHOATED is correct then I have ?N?C?U? and can find nothing to fit that pattern. I suspect the "support" part of the clue might be "GUY" as the last three letters but that doesn't actually help me.

Any ideas?

Flower in this case is a river .... Euphrates is an anagram of the first 3 words

Euphrates is the selling name for a type of rose, so that is probably why this is the answer. Use ' Ask Jeeves'which gives this rose as one answer.
