‘Taiga’ is an exotic-looking Clematis and would thrive in a patio container or against a south-facing wall.
The plant can reach a width of 1 metre and height of 2.5 metres and should be grown in a sunny position.
When the flower first opens, it is very spiky, then it becomes rosette-like with large outer tepals, before the final stage when the centre opens out to create a luxuriant full double flower.
It is being launched at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 and entered into the RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year competition.
