Buy Clematis 'Taiga' (PBR) clematis (group 3): Incredibly showy bi-coloured flowers

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The flowers on this late-flowering clematis are incredibly showy, varying in shape and colour throughout the season, from deep purple-blue double flowers with greenish cream 'painted' tips, to rich purple singles with inner frills and cream centres, or amazing star-shaped flowers. These flowers appear in abundance in midsummer, and usually continue well into autumn. It's relatively compact, so is ideal for larger pots that have been topped with an obelisk.

    Please note that the plant comes in a black plastic pot - not the one in the photographs, which has been potted up with a more mature plant.

  • Garden care: In early spring cut back the previous year's stems to a pair of strong buds about 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground level and apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the plant, avoiding the immediate crown.

Lovely healthy plant when it arrived. I'm growing it in a container with obelisk. It's first year wasn't bad, but this year it's much stronger and full of flowers. I know it's supposed to be a late flowering clematis, but with the lovely weather we've had, it was flowering before all my other Clematis! Not everyone's taste, but I enjoy its unusual flower.



Slightly different


Bought as part of a group of Clematis and mixes in well with the other colours, (pinks and purples) though not so sure I'd use it as a standalone. Ours are planted in a very strong sunny position so the colour is perhaps not as vibrant as pictured. Healthy plant, took off and flowered in the first year.

I would buy this again


A hardy plant, and produces blooms all through the season




Unusual & Exquisite


Arrived well packed; flowered prolifically in its first year, last year; looking forward to the same again this year ! A beautiful, unusual and exciting clematis
