If so, how big of a post would you put in?

RE: Can I pillar Viking Queen?

I had it growing up and around an 8 ft metal obelisk for a couple years--never quite got to the top, but then it got RRD and I had to dig it up, so I can't say for sure whether or not it would have outgrown that obelisk.


RE: Can I pillar Viking Queen?

I have Viking Queen on a 7' metal obelisk (13" diameter) for 2 years. It has a prime location in my garden and it sent branches to the top. However, last year flowering was weak. Looking forward to a great growing season this year.
This climber is supposed to be great on a pillar, with its flexible, long branches. (I am in NY with serious humidity in the summer and low winter temps).
Other climbers that are supposed to perform well on pillars are New Dawn and Iceberg.
