Description from Johnson’s Nursery: American Bittersweet is a Wisconsin native climbing vine with colorful clusters of orange fruit capsules that open to reveal red seeds. Celastrus scandens is dioecious, meaning you need a male and a female plant to get fruiting. This is a multi-season vine, offering fragrant white flowers in spring, dense foliage in summer, with fall color and a fruit display in autumn.
