Clematis 'Taiga' is an introduction from Japan where the name literally means "great river". For us ‘Taiga’ means a long river of flowers because this Clematis does not only have very special flowers but also a very rich and long flowering period. In summer and autumn you can enjoy the unique, purple blue flowers that look different every season. 'Taiga' grows to 100 cm wide and 250 cm high. It thrives in fertile, humus-rich and well-drained soil. Winter hardy to -18 °C. Prune in March at 50 cm above ground.'Taiga' is a great plant as a solitary on balconies and terraces, in a hanging basket, as wall planting (facing south), or combined with other plants.
