I just purchased a monrovia Virgina Creeper. I would like to know how to train the vine to climb our wall, or will this VIrginia Creeper get tendrils/aerial rootlet that can grip so the vine can climb?

Virginia Creeper uses little "sticky pads" to cling to surfaces such as walls. To encourage it to climb, simply place or lean the growing tips upward and against the wall and they should cling on their own.
