Q.Black Eyed Susan Vines At The Base Of The Tree

Zone Marietta, GA | watsus1979@gmail.com added on May 22, 2021 | Answered

A large portion of my front yard has fully grown trees…maybe 50ft+. We live in GA and get a lot of sunlight in our front yard even at the base of the trees throughout the year. Id say at least 6 hrs a day ( they are large deciduous trees. It rarely gets below 40 degrees here. I am wondering if it is possible to grow these vines around the base of one of the trees. The soil is moist, but not soggy, the weeds have all been pulled and pine mulch has been laid down. I am not sure if it would grow up the tree or damage it in any way and everything I’ve seen says trellis retaining wall or hanging pot. Does anyone use large trees as a sort of natural trellis for these under the right conditions?

Because these plants keep themselves in check, they are well suited for applications such as this! They would not harm the tree.

Here is an article that will give you more information on the care of the plant:
