Gorgeous Twining Vine with Decorative Fruit

American Bittersweet Vines, Celastrus scandens, has clusters of petite, green-tinted blossoms appear sprinkled throughout this decorative vine in spring.

Orange-yellow capsules appear in summer, opening to reveal scarlet berry-like seeds that persist into winter. Even the fall foliage of Bittersweet is colorful, its lively yellow leaves brightening up the autumn landscape.

You'll love using this in seasonal wreaths for your front door, but you'll have to fight the birds for the pretty berries. Use a twining spray or two in other fall color cut flower bouquets. 

Plant this as the perfect "Spiller" in container gardens. It looks fabulous all season long, and can be kept in the pot for wintertime interest. 

This fast-growing vine is the perfect way to dress up a drab area of your late-season yard. From its delightful twining nature and spring color to its fall display and brilliant red berries, American Bittersweet is sure to brighten your landscape this year.
