What Houzz contributors are saying:
11. Climbers or wall vines on the exteriors of the building add a lot of character and softness to the building, while providing shade and privacy. However, one disadvantage is that the aerial roots of some of these plants, by which they cling to the wall, might discolour the external paint or damage the mortar of old buildings. You can choose climbing vines that do not produce these roots, if that is a concern.
