Modified stem of a plant

The organism in the picture is a plant. The plant has tendrils. The plant evolved a modified stem which helps it climb and gain greater support. Tendrils allow the plant to expand to areas that without the tendrils it would be impossible to; they also allow the plant to grow more. In the picture the plant is climbing across the fence slowly.
