I have one which I have had for 41 years and transfered it when we moved and also grew some as a hedge.The lilac has now been in one spot for 36 years but alas it has a virus of sorts and is dying.it grew as a small tree as we pruned the top so as it woundt get too big.

clematis-through-apple-tree---ok-or-not

Posted: 22/08/2013 at 16:24

One house my Mother had had over 70 clematis growing through the trees ,they were ok  and kept in check but they can strangle a tree and as in covering it and taking over ending in a bit of a mess,but they do look better growing through a bush or like mine ,a rose ,passion flower and red currant bush.
