Petiolaris will cling to a tree. Nice one at Beth Chatto's garden. Less nice one in my garden, it doesn't like the soil it's in

You've probably got mine Tetley, we've had the population explosion, less now.

2m is near enough. That will stop quite a bit of wind.  Short stakes are OK, the top can flap around as long as the roots don't.

Whatever it's doing it's probably been doing it for years. My guess would be rusting iron pipes from higher up the drainage system. or, if your area is largely sand/gravel, staining from that. Some of the field drains around here are bright orange from outflow from the gravel washing in the gravel pits
