Celastrus scandens, also known as American Bittersweet or Bittersweet, is a sturdy perennial vine that blooms mostly in June and is commonly found in woodlands with well-drained soils. Its twining, woody stems can grow up to 30 feet long and an inch thick at the base, winding around other vegetation and sometimes killing saplings. Its orange, pea-sized fruits are poisonous to humans but beloved by birds. Native Americans and pioneers used the roots of C. scandens for medicinal purposes, and it is still used as a folk remedy for liver and skin ailments, rheumatism, and dysentery. This plant likes full sun and can even grow in poor soil. Order your Climbing Bittersweet seeds today!
