Where are “clinging” vines best suited for planting?

Plant climbing vines in the right location

Clinging vines should never be used on the walls of frame buildings. Their method of climbing has a tendency to damage wood since they cling so closely to the wall. Moisture is likely to collect under them and cause the wood to rot. They can also force fine wood structures apart by pushing their way into the joints. They are best used on brick or masonry walls.
