I have a few related riddles:

I crawl up fences,
in camouflage green,
One of fastest of my type,
that you've ever seen,
Sweet berries I bring,
Used in jam and that kind of thing.

I'm very tall,
My body is hard and brown,
My head is a green crown,
I have some sweet liquid unseen,
I'm cut down for my resource,
A popular four letter noun.

I cover the ground,
Can be found all around,
Short and small,
Numbers make me tall,
The most common plant of all.
