Joint Pine can grow as a stand alone bush/shrub to a height of 60-100 centimeters. However, it can also grow as a climber when given something to climb on. In this situation it can grow to the height of whichever tree it is using as a support.

Joint Pine is also void of leaves and the job of photosynthesis is taken over by the green stems.
