Q.What vines grow well against a brick wall or is it too hot?
My clematis died and I thought it was due to winter-kill, but I was told that it is too hot to grow it next to a brick wall. Do you have any suggestions?
If the roots are well-mulched, I don't think growing next to a brick wall is a negative. Much more likely to be damaging are issues of moisture, disease, incorrect pruning, and wrong variety for your area.
