Magnolia Vine (Schisandra chinensis), what's it like?
I purchased a small Magnolia Vine which I intend to grow all around a stone pillar 5 ft. tall and three ft. both across, left to right and front to back. My main question is this,"Is the area suffcient space for the vine If I keep it diligently pruning?" I want the vine to completely cover all sides of the stone pillar. I assume it climbs by twining around, so that I intend to fasten a support system to the pillar for it to cling to.
Also, does Magnolia Vine develope a sizable trunk and armature like tree magnolias? Probably the most important question is, "Is it a worthwhile vine to grow?"
