The following list of climbing plant names are of true climbers that will climb any suitable structure by various means. It does not include those plants which do not actually physically climb, but simply lean against a wall or fence. Wall shrubs and climber plants are different though they may sometimes be used with modification for the same purpose.
The climbing plants in this list will be able to either modify parts of their leaves or stems to hold and support the climber upwards through trellis, fencing or pergola. Others will have the ability to produce adventitious roots along part of their stems which are capable of clinging to walls. Yet others will have modified stems of leaves that have tendrils which twine around supports.
Climbing or rambling roses are not true climbers in respect of any of the above modifications, but have suitable thorns which are used to clamber up supports. They are included in this list because some are able to clamber up through trees or pergolas unaided once they have gained initial support.
The method of climbing is outlined for every climbing plant in the list, together with basic information about flowers; preferred planting positions; evergreen or deciduous and any other basic information pertinent to individual plants.
Most of the climbers in the list are hardy perennial plants which are also true climbers, though annuals or short lived plants are also included to make this a useful memory-jogger when assessing whether or not to include a climbing plant in your plan.
