True size of Teksa

Posted by lindyb z8 OR (My Page) on

I've read conflicting statements about the size of Teksa. I had planned to put it on an arbor with Mme. Ernest Calvat until I read that it only gets to 5-6'. Then I read somewhere that it gets 6-8'. The first will do in a pot with a shorter pillar while the second is too tall for that but is it really tall enough for an 8' arbor? Until I feel confident about how tall this one will get I'm not comfortable about planting it anywhere. Can someone tell me their experience with Teksa?

RE: True size of Teksa

How tall any clematis will get will vary from garden to garden due to cultural practices, sun exposure, length of growing season, overall vigor of the individual plant, and many more factors. A range of 5 to 8 feet is not that big of a difference when it comes to clematis. What someone tells you about their Teksa may or may not have any relation to what it will do in your garden.

RE: True size of Teksa

My Teska has stayed within 5-6 feet but it is only 3 years old.
