Expert Answer:

Tendril is a threadlike organ of climbing plants, growing in spiral form, which attaches itself to or twines round some other body, so as to support the plant.

Leaf tendrils are coiled structures that attaches a plant for support. Example: Pea.

Stem tendril are thin, coiled structure that is a modified part of a stem that provides support.Example-Grape
