Can Virginia Creeper be trained?
Hi all. I just bought a small virginia creeper plant in like a 1-quart pot. I bought it for the purposes of training it up a trellis I have made of some 2 x 4's and chicken wire. But upon seeing the plant, it looks quite woody. Will I in fact be able to weave this plant in and out of the wires so that it will eventually grow up the trellis on its own?
I've never trained a vine before, but I would have thought this plant would have thinner "stems"...but when I saw how woody it was, I'm afraid that if I try to train it the woody branches might snap/break....
