Raising height of standard (lollipop) topiary

I'll do my best since nobody else has

From the flat-topped appearance I think these have already had their growing tips removed to stop upward growth and make the ball. From there they will have made multiple stems. Therefore no single stem to carry on upwards. The multiples will go on upwards. When you have removed a few lower branches you will find the base of these multiple stems rather than the single trunk.

I have no experience of this, just extrapolating from plant growth generally.

watch that plant Brian, you say it's growing fast. They get ideas of world domination. 

But what happened to your clematis and your acer?

No, it's not common, it's an impossibility. A clematis cannot hybridise with an acer.

I think what you have there is a parthenocissus of some sort.

excellent, they'll do a lot of growing before spring, might need a pot on at some point.

It might upset them a bit for start but they'll get over it. They're hardy. If you have a cold GH or frame you could keep them in pots over winter otherwise I'd harden them off and plant them out while the ground is still warm and they're growing well.
