Climbing plants are described as twiners when in absence of supporting plant structures, they twine themselves around another plant or some other object.
Climbing plants such as these will always need some support, and twiners need something to twine around.
Wall shrubs and especially natural twiners like Clematis will need careful tying in as they tend to grab hold of anything nearby in their attempt to secure a foothold.
