Climbers are plants which climb up trees or other objects, like walls or fences. Climbers can be a welcome addition to many landscaping designs, enhancing garden ideas and rock gardens.

Climbers include over 130 plant families.
Botanists generally divide climbing plants into two broad groups:
– Bines, which twine their stems around a support. Many bines have rough stems or downward-pointing bristles to aid their grip.
Hops (used in flavoring beer) are a commercially important bine.
Morning glory, Ipomoea species.
Honeysuckle

– Vines which use tendrils, suckers and other methods.
twining petioles (e.g., Clematis species)
using tendrils, which may be specialized shoots (Vitaceae), leaves (Bignoniaceae), or even inflorescences (Passiflora)
using tendrils which have adhesive pads at the end. The pads attach themselves quite strongly to the support, (Parthenocissus: Virginia creeper)
using thorns (e.g. climbing rose) or other hooked structures, such as hooked branches (e.g. Artabotrys hexapetalus)
by clinging roots (e.g., ivy, Hedera species)

Most vines are flowering plants. These may be divided into woody vines or lianas, such as wisteria, kiwifruit, and common ivy, and herbaceous (nonwoody) vines, such as morning glory.
Some vines, like Hylocereus undatus – Pink Dragonfruit, produce fruit.
