Amethyst Beauty™ Clematis Plant
Blooms Reach 6 Inches Wide!
A showstopping Clematis with giant blooms that mature from light purple to rich lavender-blue, Amethyst Beauty™ is one of the most impressive climbers for the garden. You will find it very floriferous all summer, its subtle color changes bringing new interest to the display with each passing week!
Bred by master Clematarian Raymond J. Evison, Amethyst Beauty™ reaches the height of its season in early summer, but continues to toss out blooms all season long. A very free bloomer, it sets wide open flowers with ruffled edges and red anthers. Before long, all hues of purple and blue are present on the plant at once, for a truly remarkable show.
Amethyst Beauty™ reaches about 6 to 8 feet tall, a compact size just right for today's smaller garden spaces. It's perfect for the mailbox, the lamppost, or a porch railing, as well as large containers and the sunny border. Enjoy this English beauty!
Clematis is easy to grow in a rich, porous, alkaline soil with plenty of room for the roots to spread. Best performance is when the tops are in full sunlight and the roots are shaded, so apply a generous mulch or a shallow-rooted groundcover near the base of the vine. Very reliable performers once established, they take a season or two to get going. Amethyst Beauty™ is a Group II Clematis for pruning purposes, which means that in early spring you should cut back the vine 6 or 8 inches to the nearest pair of strong leaf axil buds. Zones 4-9.
