Using  obelisks

Obelisks are tower-like shapes used to support climbing plants. These structures may be purely practical as in poles, or sticks  tied at the top, but the majority are ornamental too, bringing a sculptural and even colourful element to the garden year-round. Styles range from traditional Victorian through classic Edwardian to rustic country, and materials include wood, and  willow. To choose the correct obelisk, it helps to know how the plant climbs.
Plants with little tendrils have a hard time taking hold of wide wooden supports; look for thin crosspieces that they can hang on to, or opt for a willow or wire obelisk Examples of this type of plant are  Sweet peas and passionflower.
 There are then the plants that clamber by

wrapping either their stalks or their.  leaves round the support. The plants that climb by wrapping their leaves around supports  prefer narrow supports; those that cling by wrapping  their stems around supports  are less fussy and will develop vigorously on just about anything.

Varieties of plants that climb in this fashion are,  Clematis,  honeysuckle, pole beans,  hyacinth beans (Lablabpurpureus), morning glory, moonflower (Ipomoea alba), thunbergia
Other plants climb by setting out adhering roots. The roots originate from the plant stems. Aptly called holdfasts, these roots fasten extremely firmly so they can be a long-term solution. Ivy is effective when trained to the obelisk shape to look like a conical evergreen.  Winter creeper (Euonymus fortunei cvs.), climbing hydrangea, ivy are plants that climb  in this way.
Then there are the Scrambling type plants. These are primarily climbing roses, which will not attach themselves and should be secured to the support.  Make sure your obelisk is well-anchored and is actually tall enough for the plants that you would like to grow.
