Clematis or ? for Trellis
We have a trellis in our garden that is around a pond and has a box hedge below it that is about 30 inches high. We are about to repair it and change the post positions, so the established clematis etc will not be in correct positions.
The clematis shoots each year from just below the hedge height and we cut it back to this every year. Tmain bas stem is rather thich 1-2cm, and there is no chance to lift it as roots are mixed with the hedge roots, so starting again.
I like the idea of cutting back as it gives a chance to repaint the trellis, so what clematis would be suitable fot such cutting back please.
