Q.Proper Clematis Variety For 10′ Tree Stump. Bring Life And Beauty To A Newly Lost Tree To Storm
Clematis or climbing plant for a newly cut tree, leaving a 10′ trunk. I do not have knowledge of flowering vines. Have no clue what would be best but feel a few climbing vines would be a beautiful replacement for storm downed tree, 14″ dia x 10’h green stump. South side of house, wide open sun until 4-5pm, shaded by 30′ pine. would like to wrap the stump with color, different seasons, heights, color, style. maybe separate trellis in A=frame style at base to divide for sun and growth demands. Not sure, any help would be greatly appreciated.
