Most vines are grown for their beautiful flowers while some have interesting foliage or even provide us with fruit. They add a vertical dimension to the garden and can be used to create a beautiful focal point, cover up an existing eyesore, or create privacy in the garden.
Some vines are more aggressive than others and careful consideration should be given to the type of vine chosen, its sun/shade requirements, the amount of space available, and the type of support structure for it to climb on.
For example some vines will cling to surfaces with their aerial roots, some produce tendrils that wrap around objects, while others climb by wrapping their whole stem around an object. Especially when growing perennial vines, one must consider whether or not the support structure is able to take the weight of the fully grown vine with its foliage and/or fruit.
