Celastrus orbiculatus (Oriental Bittersweet) are fast growing climbers or erect, arching shrubs that grow on any good soil. The branches grow in zig-zag formations and have pointed edged, broad leaves. The small, green-yellow flowers are borne in panicles. The skin of the attractive, yellow fruit opens up to reveal the orange, fleshed seed coat. These fruits remain on the plant during winter. This plant is part of the dioecious species which means the male and female flowers are on different plants. It is best to order at least 2 plants so that you have a greater chance to get both sexes which will produce berries if planted together. Easy to grow and drought tolerant.
