Rubioideae has many different kinds of genera, many being erect and many being climbers and creepers.
In the Plant theory the climbers and creepers have been placed in Subphase 2.
They have a duality between being self-assured and shy, between going their own way and adapting to others.
They often look very bright, beautiful and shiny but on the other hand adapt to people in higher positions. They can be the wife of, the secretary of, the man at the second position who supports the man in the higher position. Or they can use others to get to a higher position themselves. The most extreme form is that of using sex to get higher up in the social ladder, to get a position in television or theatre.
