Are Goji Berry plants a vine or bush? And if so, how can I hold the plant up if it is a vine?

Wolfberries are also known as goji berries or chinese wolfberries. Wolfberries are prized for their antioxidant and mineral content. They can be eaten dried or fresh. Wolfberries are not fussy plants and can be grown in heavy clay and sandy soils, in part shade to full sun. Wolfberries are vining shrubs that are often planted on banks to control erosion. Hardy in zones 5 to 9, wolfberries attract wildlife and are a good source of nectar for bees.

Choose a well-drained spot with at least 6 hours of sun a day. Dig a hole just larger than the roots. Most wolfberries are shipped in containers; plant the roots at the same depth as they are in the container. Leave enough space for the adult plant to reach 8 feet tall and wide.

Hope this answers all your questions!
