Taiga Clematis

Description
This new introduction is like no Clematis you've ever seen. Taiga has two-toned flowers with unique incurved petals, and you can be among the first to own this award winner—first introduced at the 2017 Chelsea Flower Show. Like most Clematis, this lively climber covers up an old fence or dresses up a lamp post, mailbox or arbor, but be sure to plant it where you can best enjoy its unusually colored and formed blooms. A Southern belle, the breeding that gives it the fluffy multi-petaled appearance also mandates that it is a bit more tender, performing best in Zone 7 and south, although success has been reported in trials in Zone 6. Taiga's vigorous trailing habit allows it to scale walls and other objects with ease, adding visual interest almost anywhere. Grow in a container with support for a stunning addition to patios and decks. With blooms 3-6" wide, there's no shortage of conversation when gathered around these showy, bright purple flowers with distinct, creamy white tips. Clematis are extravagant, hardy bloomers that become better with age and are a breeze to grow and prune. Simply cut back stems to just above ground level at season's end. Clematis florida x 'Taiga'.
