    This is growing over the bushes and starting up the side of a building. Bees seem to be working it. Tennessee.

    Why, English Ivy it is (or some variety of it).
    I used to grow it indoors as a house plant.

    I did Google search for ‘vine with small white tubular flowers’ and the closest match I could find was climbing hempvine (Mikania scandens), native to your location.

    Hedera helix, common ivy, native to most of Europe and Asia. Can be invasive, considered a noxious weed in Oregon and Washington.
    See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedera_helix for more information.

    I saw it all over Slovenia when I was there, and the bees were all over it - I heard the hum long before I came across the wall of ivy. The problem is that ivy honey crystallizes very quickly.

    I do not think it is ivy because the shape of each flower is not right . Not sure whether it is bluevine or hempvine or something else (I have never actually seen them), but it looks more like bluevine, I think.
