Climbing plants or climbers are also known as vines. Most climbers are flowering plants. They can be woody or non-woody. Climbers display a growth form based on long stems. Most of the time, climbers limb higher for the purpose of reaching for more sunlight. There were also some climbers that grow away from light. Climbers can climb by twining their stems around a support, clinging their roots, using twining petioles, using tendrils, using leaves, or using thorns.
