This particular variety is known for its large, star-shaped flowers that exude a rich, deep amethyst purple hue. Each blossom possesses a velvety texture and rounded petals that gently overlap, creating a sense of depth and fullness. The center of the flowers features a prominent tuft of creamy-yellow stamens, which adds a striking contrast against the dark purple petals and draws in pollinating insects.

They climb and meander over structures, such as trellises and fences, with a graceful habit, lending a romantic and enchanting feel to garden spaces. The intertwining of stems and leaves creates a lush backdrop for the stunning flowers, which appear profusely during the bloom period. The overall appearance of this Clematis variant is one of regal beauty, combining the striking purple flowers with attractive foliage, making it a popular choice for gardeners looking to add vertical interest and a splash of bold color to their outdoor spaces.

    Clematis Amethyst Beauty should be watered regularly to maintain a moist but not waterlogged soil. Typically, water this Clematis thoroughly once a week with about 1 gallon of water per plant, increasing frequency during hot, dry periods. Ensure water is applied directly to the soil and not over the foliage to minimize the risk of fungal diseases. During the growing season, you may need to water more frequently; always check the top inch of the soil for dryness before watering again. Reduce watering in the fall as the plant goes dormant and further in winter, especially if the ground is frozen.

  • sunLight

    The ideal light condition for Clematis Amethyst Beauty is a location with full sun to partial shade. They thrive best with about six hours of sunlight a day, ideally with the plant's roots shaded to keep them cool. An optimal spot would be where the roots are shaded either by low plants or a mulch, but the vines and flowers can climb into the sun.

  • circleLife cycle

    Clematis 'Amethyst Beauty' starts as a seed or more commonly from cuttings, developing roots and shoots in its juvenile stage. After planting, the clematis will enter a vegetative growth phase, where leaves, stems, and a robust root system develop, using trellises or supports to climb. As it matures, it enters the flowering stage, usually in late spring to early summer, producing large, purple flowers. Following pollination, seeds are produced in a feathery, plume-like structure. In the fall, the clematis enters a period of dormancy, where above-ground growth dies back, and the plant conserves resources within the root system. The clematis will resume growth the following spring, repeating its cycle and maturing further, potentially for several decades with appropriate care.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • Clematis 'Amethyst Beauty' is often propagated through layering or softwood cuttings, with the latter being the most popular method. In spring or early summer, when the plant is in active growth, semi-ripe cuttings about 3-4 inches (7.6-10.2 cm) long are taken from healthy shoots. These cuttings should have at least two sets of leaves. The lower set of leaves is removed, and the cut end is dipped in rooting hormone before planting in a well-drained potting mix. Maintaining high humidity around the cutting by covering it with plastic or glass and keeping it in a warm, indirect light ensures the best chance of rooting. After a few weeks, once roots have established, the new clematis can be transplanted to a larger pot or directly into the garden.
