A term used to describe plants that grow through stems that extend outward, sometimes climbing along surfaces like trees and homes. While their stems are also known as vines, common usage has left the term almost always referring to grapevines. "Climber" is commonly used for any plant with wall-scaling vines. Vines are known for the ability to climb various vertical surfaces, including poles, strings, lattices, and walls. Vines typically produce a woody stem as they mature, giving them strength to climb higher and spread wider. Their branches of leaves and flowers give extra coverage as they spread farther on surfaces.
Home gardeners who want to add greenery to a trellis or front porch should consider adding climbing vines to their yard. These plants are beautiful, easy to grow and some are aromatic. Here are some examples of climbing vines that work well in any landscape setting
