The "Kivistik Clematis Collection" of Clematis from Estonia. 

The Kivistik Clematis Collection™ Finally, an amazing clematis collection for consistent gardening success!! Pride of Place Plants Inc., is proud to represent the fine breeding work of Uno and Aili Kivistik and their Clematis cultivars. The Roogoja Farm, of the Kivistik family, is located in Karla village, Kose parrish, Harjumaa county of Estonia. More than 100 years old, the farm is 43 hectars in size and is situated at the banks of the river Kuivajoe. Roogoja Farm is recognized as the northernmost breeding nursery for Clematis Cultivars, located on the 58th parallel. The farm is continued by Aili, son Taavi and his wife Aime (Uno Kivistik passed in 1998). These cultivars have rarely been seen in North America but their contribution to Horticulture deserves full recognition.

The Kivistik’s Clematis breeding program was met with the criteria to create cultivars with:

*Compact growth habit

*Annual numerous rich blossoms that develop on the current season’s growth lasting throughout the Spring and Summer months.
Note: These clematis are blooming (not just one or two blooms but a load full) year after year consistently with no difficulty of care, and surviving all temperatures,

*The Clematis cultivars needed to be able to be pruned low (to 15 cm) so they could endure the cold winter temperatures offered in Estonia, and still returning year after year. And they do!

*As an added bonus, the criteria met the growers and gardeners needs in the current trends of patio and container plants and small gardens.
After testing extensively in our test gardens of Pride of Place Plants Inc., at Victoria British Columbia, Canada, we are hooked and you will be too!
