Clematis 'Taiga' is a true spectacle, whether showcased in landscape groupings or as the solo star in containers. Throughout the summer, it bursts forth with copious double purple flowers, strikingly accented with lime tips and spanning 3-6 inches wide. Exhibiting a compact growth pattern, the plant's blossoms initially present as spikey dark lavender blooms edged in white. As they mature, they unfurl to reveal a fuller double bloom, allowing the deep lavender hue to dominate. Intriguingly, the flowers undergo transformations throughout the season, ensuring an ever-evolving display.
Plant Care: Plants do best with a climbing support and with a few inches of mulch to keep their roots cool. This variety blooms on both old wood and new, so pruning is not necessary unless you want to shape the plant. Any shaping should be done in late winter.
