American Bittersweet

A Native Vine for the Shade


The American Bittersweet, ‘Celastrus scandens’, is a native fast growing vine which thrives in part shade to full shade in zones 2-8.


This plant needs both male and female plant to produce the beautiful fruit, but only the female plants will produce fruit. Plants are sold unsexed.


The small greenish-white flowers are produced in June in short clusters. These mature into a fruit that is a round, orange-yellow capsule which opens to disclose the scarlet-colored seed pod.The fall display consists of brilliant yellow foliage interspersed with orange and red berries.


Birds love the berries all winter long.
