Climber to cover a bare tree trunk
I have a tall blue-ish tree that I think is a juniper, with a bare trunk where I snipped off some dead branches. I don't like the look of it but I don't want to take the tree down. I was thinking of putting a rambling rose up it, specifically an Adelaide d'Orleans or a rambling rector. I'm also thinking of an evergreen clematis like armandii.
Will this look ok? Do you have any other suggestions? The bare part of the trunk is about 2 m high and the tree is about 4.5 m tall.
