Is Clematis tangutica a THUG in our area?
I bought a gorgeous Clematis tangutica 'Golden Tiara' and had the planting spot all picked out - until a friend showed up and warned me to be v-e-r-y careful of this plant. She told me it could be a real thug! My inclination is that maybe it could become a thug in hotter parts of the west...say, CA or AZ...but not so much here...
So what say you folks??? I was thinking of putting it right next to a purple-leaved grape so that both could climb up & across a patio pergola.
Thanks in advance for your feedback!
