to hide a concrete post
what plant can i use to hide an unwanted concrete post in border. Can't remove the post its too deep and concreted in many years ago.Suggestions please
Is it stood in the middle, or at the back? Shady or sunny? You can train certain climbers to posts - Wisteria, climbing hydrangea, pillar roses of course.
Attach a wooden trellis to it, possibly paint both in the same colour. Add a climber to suit the conditions, and that might work. If you want something less intrusive than a trellis, some wire or string wrapped around the post would act as a support for a climber. Unless you want to see the post in Winter, I'd go for an evergreen climber.
I've got a climbing iceberg rose on my dilapidated concrete washing line post, with a clematis macropetala growing through that. It doesn't hide it completely, particularly this time of the year when the rose has been pruned and isn't as tall as the post, but I think it looks better than the bare post.
I'd paint it black first.

A pic would help, because it also depends what else is there, as
