Climbing plants to cover a dead Acer
Sadly a beautiful Acer died this winter leaving a large gap in a border between a Pieris and another bronze leaf Acer. Its skeleton measures some 12ft x 12ft and I'm considering using it as a support for climbing plants, rather than removing it.
Soil is marginally acidic and ideal colours would be pink or purple. I'm thinking of Roses and Clematis.
I would welcome advice and plant suggestions.
