:Hi RJ,

:I don't know where you could buy some, but you should be able to find some just about anywhere. The stuff is basically a very invasive weed-like vine that grows up the sides of trees, wrapping around the trunk and branches. Sometimes it starts hanging down from the branches twisting around itself making a tightly woven rope-like vine perfect for arboreal perches or photo props.

===============

Without the benefit of seeing what the foliage and/or flowers look like, I would say offhand it appears to be chinese wisteria, a vine that if left unchecked can indeed become an invasive 'weed'...the older the vine, the thicker it becomes.

The vines really do not appear gnarled enough bark wise to be japanese honeysuckle (another weed when left unchecked).

Wild grape it definitely doesn't appear to be. Besides the fact it's not gnarled enough in the bark, the wild grape doesn't twine tightly in the fashion that the honeysuckle or wisteria typically does.

Hope this helps.

Wyvern
