Child Friendly Climbing Plants

Anonymous added on February 28, 2015 | Answered

I have a garden arbor that is only 1/4 covered by a small purple flower plant. I would like to plant another climber so the arbor is completed covered. I would like it to flowering, pink or white preferably, but it must be safe for children - non toxic to eat or touch and no thorns.
