There are oodles of different climbers, some more unusual than others. Take Campsis, for example. This woody, deciduous trumpet vine produces orange and yellow trumpet-shaped flowers. It's vigorous and versatile, yet you don't see it very often. Boston ivy, Parthenocissus tricuspidata, is a vigorous self-clinging vine which is also known as Woodbine. Like Virginia creeper, Parthenocissus quinquefolia, it has the most amazing autumn leaf colour. Then there are climbers within the potato family, Solanum; a climbing form of Hydrangea, and Actinidea, which is a member of the kiwi family, to mention only a few.
