Help with placement and clematis!

llover(6a)April 20, 2011

I have just lost a weeping snow fountain cherry and hoping to make the best of a bad sutuation. Husband thought maybe should put up wire on trunk of tree and let a vine grow up. What do you think? Any sugestions for a clematis?

What about Rooguchi you guys said long bloomer? I haven't even checked on this plant availably yet.

Thanks,

Ellen

I let a clematis climb up a dead crabapple once. Eventually, the crabapple fell over in a high wind. Because I wanted height at that spot, I replaced the tree with a rebar tripod, which is what those clems climb up now.
