Guernsey Clematis Nursery

Texensis Gravetye Beauty

Category: Our Clematis

Raised by Morel, France, about 1900. Introduced into England by William Robinson in 1914 and named after his estate Gravetye Manor. Also bears miniature tulip-like flowers, however these open much more than cl.'Duchess of Albany' for example, perhaps a little too much, giving a gappy appearance to the flower as it ages. The four to six tepals are a very deep rich red  and taper to a point, recurving as the flower matures. Reddish brown anthers. The flower, when fully open, measures about 6-8cm (2.5-3.5in) across. This cultivar is best grown at ground level through other ground cover plants, or even summer bedding plants, where its colourful flowers can best be enjoyed.
