LANDSCAPING ROCK WALL MORE ATTRACTIVE

I AM BUILDING A ROCK RETAINING WALL. I REALIZE NOW THAT THE ROCK AND MORTAR ARE UGLY. IS THERE A WAY TO GIVE THE ROCKS COLOR? PAINT, STAIN, VARNISH? THANKS

Rocks certainly can be painted, but if you do so, you're setting yourself up for regular maintenance of repainting. Is is possible to plant vines that would drape down over the rocks or climb up the rocks from below to help disguise them? That would be a more permanent solution.
