Growing Clematis Montana into trees.
We have an old hedgerow at the bottom of our back garden, made up hawthorn, and ash and sycamore trees. A lot of the tree trunks are swathed in ivy. We'd like to grow a vigorous climber through them, such as a clematis montana, but have read it's not a good idea to put clematis with woodland trees (?). If this is the case, can anyone suggest another big fast-growing climber? Aspect is east-south-east, and the base is mainly in shade.
Thanks in advance! :)
