Climbing vine to cover tree trunk
I would like to plant a perennial vine to cover and climb up a tree trunk. I know virginia creeper would work but does anyone have any other suggestions? I like clematis of course but that would mean providing some kind of support. Is honeysuckle vine self supporting or does it need help as well? I should mention that I need something that doesn't have a big footprint because the tree is in a garden with other perennials around its base. Thanks.
