A historically important hybrid, Gravetye Beauty is a must-grow for the serious Clematis collector. Bred in France by Francois Morel, this genus-changing plant was introduced to Brits by William Robinson, famed author of "The English Flower Garden," in 1914. Robinson planted this hybrid at the Gravetye Manor, his home in the UK, popularizing red Clematis and creating a lasting impact worldwide.

It's easy to see why gardeners around the globe fell in love with Gravetye Beauty. Its bell shape and bright-red coloring come from the native texensis Clematis, and flowers open wide to expose striking centers of white filaments and red anthers. A large plant with medium-sized flowers, this Clematis will bloom abundantly on a trellis or fence top.

Gravetye Beauty is a true hummingbird magnet, thanks to its unique shape and coloring. If hummingbirds live in your area, you will see them visit this beautiful red Clematis. Clematis 'Gravetye Beauty'

In our EZ Pruning Guide, this variety is in the GREEN pruning category. These Clematis bloom on new vines that emerge from the ground each year or stems from near the bottom of older vines. Prune hard in the spring and as often as you like to encourage reblooming and keep the plant as tidy as you like.
