Default Direction of vine winding

Began searching when I noticed that my pole beans were all climbing
clockwise and a bind weed was winding in the other direction. (West of
Denver)



Was going to attempt a contact in the southern hemisphere but realize
now that it would have to be the same bean seed.

Twining direction is determined by genus or species. Some plants are
consistently clock-wise climbers and others are counter-clockwise. For
fun, Google up the old Flanders and Swann song about the Honeysuckle...
