 Clematis 
Raymond Evison

Why Buy a Raymond J. Evison (R.E) Clematis?
Raymond Evison is renowned as a clematis breeder with over 5 decades of experience and history creating some of the world’s best clematis. Since he began working with clematis at the age of sixteen, he has introduced more than 100 species and cultivars to gardeners worldwide, including some of the most dramatic blooms seen so far. His exhibits at the Chelsea Flower show have gained numerous gold medals and in 1995 he was awarded the Royal Horticultural Societies Victoria Medal of Honour for outstanding service to British horticulture.
His goals are to develop varieties that first and foremost:
• perform well in the garden
• deliver plenty of flowers over a long period of time
• be colourful
• are easy to grow and maintain
At Grobe's we offer an number of these premium clematis varieties in addition to many others. Genuine Evison Clematis are marked here by .


Special Orders: While we would love to carry every Clematis variety available to us, every year we are forced to make tough decisions on which to offer as a 'stocked' item here in store. Non-stocked, but generally available to order, varieties are indicated. It is sometimes possible to source varieties not on this list (but usually only in April/May/June). If you have a particular variety of interest not found here, please contact us and we will do our best to find it for you.  Please note that we do not ship clematis outside of our immediate area in Southern Ontario.

Abilene Clematis

This very free-flowering clematis is ideal for a shady position in the garden or for growing in a container on the deck garden or patio. Also ideal for brightening up an outdoor dining area. It only grows to 3-4 ft. and is easy to grow. Blooms in late spring to early fall.

Amethyst Beauty Clematis

The light purple blooms of Amethyst Beauty take on a purplish blue color as they mature with red antlers that open. The slightly ruffled petals give this clematis a nice look. It is a great rebloomer, blooming in early summer and then again in August. Standing 6-8" tall, it is great planted around patios, on a trellis or an arbor.

Avante Garde Clematis

These striking flowers are sure to get attention. Large 2 inch wide blossoms that consist of a central raised puff of rosy pink petals backed by a set in dark velvety red. This vigorous, free-flowering plant is pruned in early spring and it will shoot up to 9-10 ft, quickly covering a trellis.  Flowering begins in midsummer and goes on into autumn.

Bourbon Clematis

Dynamic and dramatic are two words that sum up the glowing red 5" diameter flowers that cover this Evison variety from late spring through late summer. Growing 6-8 ft. tall, it requires light pruning only to keep the plant tidy. It is best planted in full sun.

Charmaine Clematis

This clematis produces beautiful rich red double, semi-double and single flowers that are up to 6 inches in size from late spring to mid summer and again in autumn.  The leaves are slighter darker than most clematis and somewhat shiny.

Bourbon Clematis

Similar to Multi-blue Clematis, this new Japanese variety bears violet blue flowers with distinctive lighter colored sepals (4-5 inches in diameter) in May-June, then smaller flowers in August-September.

It looks tremendous when grown in association with purple foliaged shrubs, and prefers full sun locations. **2018 by special order

Guernsey Cream Clematis

This unique new cultivar bears large creamy yellow blooms in May - June and again in September. Cool, wet weather may cause the centers of flowers to open up pale green.

Happy Jack Clematis

Like the classic Jackmanii, this new Proven Winners variety produces large 5 inch wide rich violet blossoms with star shaped 4 petalled blossoms. it blossoms over several months, creating a wall of colour over a very long season. Unlike Jackmanii, however, the plant is a compact grower, and is a manageable size that might have uses in smaller spaces or even containers.

Hyde Hall Clematis

An outstanding plant for growing in a container for the deck garden, patio or outdoor dining area due to its fullness of flower - or in a smaller corner of the garden. It has a very free-flowering and bushy habit. Can also be grown most successfully in a garden setting and it is ideal for the smaller garden where it can be grown against dark green foliaged, free-standing or wall-trained shrubs. It grows to 5 to 6 feet tall in most sitings. It flowers in mid spring to early summer and again in late summer.

Jackmanii Clematis
Large deep velvety purple flowers form on new growth July through September. Seemingly totally winter hardy, it needs to be pruned back hard each year to 14-30 inches. The hardiest and most popular variety in existence!
Jolly Good Clematis

A truly easy-to-grow clematis from Proven Winners! Abundant light purple flowers with magenta undertones cover this clematis all summer long. Creamy white stamens provide charming contrast. This Jackmanii hybrid is a vigorous grower, yet maintains a nice compact size (to 6') that is perfect for training on fences or trellises. It flowers on new wood so you simply prune it back to two feet each spring. 

Josephine Clematis

This hardy variety bears unusual dark rose-coloured petals with lilac pink pompom centers against green leaves. Blooming April to June and then again August-September, it flowers on old and new wood. Although  tolerant of part shade, its best colour show is in full sun. Prune after blooming or as required to control vine height.

Kilian Donahue Clematis

While early flowers open ruby red, mature to brilliant fuchsia with an orchid edge to 5 inches across, later flowers of Kilian Donahue are pink lavender with a pink bar, giving the breathtaking appearance of two clematis varieties intertwined. It blooms early and repeats well through the season. It can grow 8-10 ft. in full sun.

Kitty Clematis

Newly introduced - a very compact & free flowering near white clematis. Extremely free flowering and particularly suitable for container growing.

Plant in sun or partial sun. **2018 by special order

Picardy Clematis

Picardy produces attractive dusky red flowers with dark brown anthers from early to mid-summer.

After these are done, it may be pruned beck to 6 inches and will regrow and flower again with regular watering and feeding. **2018 by special order

Rebecca Clematis

Samaritan Jo Clematis

This extremely strong-growing and very free-flowering plant can be used as a garden location plant or for growing in a container for the deck garden, patio or outdoor dining area.

It is an excellent plant for growing with roses due to its multi-flowering habit. **2018 by special order

Samaritan Jo Clematis

Clematis Samaritan Jo produces unusual 5 inch sized pointy layered petals with purple margins against a backdrop of dark green leaves. It will grow 4 to 5 feet in height, making it perfect for smaller spaces or pots.

It blooms in late spring through early summer and again in late summer, and should be pruned hard to 6 inches above ground in spring. **2018 by special order

Sarah Elizabeth Clematis

Raymond Evison has done it again! Absolutely vibrant candy-pink star-shaped flowers on this new clematis variety have delicate white freckling and are enhanced by a prominent crown of deep cherry-red anthers.

Still Waters Clematis

Pretty mauve-blue 4" diameter flowers with red anthers appear in May-June and in July-August. Each open flower remains clean and unfading for a long time, making it ideal for fresh arrangements. Best in sun or part shade, it should be pruned lightly after flowering to encourage re-blooming.

Sweet Autumn Clematis
It's finally here! Masses of small sweetly scented creamy-white flowers cover this vigorously growing vine in late August and early September followed by silver-white plumes of seed heads. Growing rapidly in sun to 20 ft. tall, it will quickly cover a large area or may be pruned back to 3 ft. each March.
Sweet Summer Love Clematis

It's finally here - a colourful alternative to Sweet Autumn from Proven Winners! This hardy vine bears red buds in July which open to rich red, magenta and purple star-shaped blooms for a dramatic multi-coloured display that continues into mid-September. It also has a distinctive fragrance (like Sweet Autumn). It takes the first year to root in, but once this is done it will grow prolifically reaching 12 ft. tall in sun or part shade. It should be pruned back hard each spring.

Tekla Clematis

This showy clematis produces beautiful 4 to 5 inch bright pink-red flowers throughout summer, with a lighter cast within each petal. This vine is free flowering and grows to 7 feet or so, and should be pruned to 12 to 18 inches tall in spring.   **2018 by special order

Venosa Violacea Clematis

Making its debut in 1883, this Victorian era French heirloom is a study in the beauty of contrast. Each of its profoundly purple petals bears a streak of snowy white that culminates as a pale velvety puff at its center. The 4 inch petals appear in spring and continue coming through early autumn. It can grow to a respectable 10 feet in height and a slender 2 feet wide which makes it perfect for many garden structures.
