Campsis radicans 'Monbal' is also called trumpet creeper. The stems of these plants have aerial rootlets, which helps them cling to wood, brick, stucco, and other surfaces. If your plant is scrambling up a trellis or other support, the vines will eventually crawl over one another and become self-supporting. It will just take a little time. Best wishes with your garden!
