A very fast growing climber to cover cherry tree by this summer

Thank you soo much. I will investigate all these suggested plants and see what I can get locally.

95% sure it is leaf spot. Spreading upwards and the leaves are droping off. Round spots and then turning brown before falling off. The warm and wet winter has helped with the spread. I am hoping that it is robust enough (being nearly 9 years old) to recover.

The tree is the focal point in my little garden and with no leaves visible at all I wanted something to cloak it.

Hi,

My lovely cherry blossom tree is almost bare due to leaf spot and I would like to cover the bare tree for this summer with a very fast growing climber. Desperate enough to consider Russian Vine. I am looking for some very quick cover and happy to dig out/cut down remove it within a year if my tree recovers.

Most of the plants I have considered such as clematis say they are fast growers but not sure if they are fast enough for cover in a couple of months.

Thanks in advance.

ps: I am a novice gardner.
