Will a camellia climbing up a holly tree kill it?



Don't think you'll persuade a Camellia to climb anywhere. Do you mean a Clematis?

Yes, I'm sorry I do

No it wont kill it and will look very pretty.

Thank you

Depends on the clematis too - if its a montana variety, it won't kill the tree directly, but it will certainly end up strangling it and preventing good growth on the Holly.
