Twiners: These are the type of vines that possess very flexible stems which twine around a support, an arbor or even a tree trunk. For examples of these would be wisteria, morning glory vine, and hyacinth bean.
Root Attachment: These are the types of vines that attach its self (rather than twine) to walls, posts, roots or any adhesive disc for support. Examples of these would be the well-known English ivy and a number of forms of Virginia creeper.
Tendril: There are some vines that have modified stems or leaves that wrap themselves on supports. For examples of these would be the popular passion flower, also known as clematis and sweet pea vines.
Learners: These vines do not possess any built-in structure that could use another object or plant for support. For that reason, these vines would have to be either tied to or woven through arbors, posts or any other structure. The best example of this type of vine is climbing roses.
