A vine (Latin vīnea "grapevine", "vineyard", from vīnum "wine") is any plant with a growth habit of trailing or scandent (that is, climbing) stems, lianas or runners. The word vine can also refer to such stems or runners themselves, for instance, when used in wicker work.[1][2]

In parts of the world, including the British Isles, the term "vine" usually applies exclusively to grapevines (Vitis),[3] while the term "climber" is used for all climbing plants.[4]
