Favorite unusual plants.

Favorite unusual plants.
My understanding of the situation here in this flowerbed at the edge of a parking lot in downtown Clinton, Iowa, is that these are dark-leafed plants that are being strangled or smothered to death by parasitic vines.

And that the original landscapers didn't mean for that to happen. But maybe I'm wrong about that? Is there a branch of landscaping where people intentionally sic parasitic vines onto other kinds of plants, for the aesthetic effect.
