American Bittersweet, Sexed Plants

American bittersweet is a native woody and shrubby climber, growing over trees or fences. It has smooth thin leaves 2 to 4 inches long and about half as wide. The small greenish-white  flowers are produced in June in short clusters. The fruit is a round, orange-yellow capsule which opens in autumn, disclosing the scarlet-colored seed pod. The seed capsules remain on the plant well into the cold season and provide food for birds in the winter.  Fruits are eaten by songbirds, ruffed grouse, pheasants, bobwhite and squirrel.  Old fruits are eaten as survival foods by many birds and animals in late winter.   Fruits should NOT be eaten by humans.  While not extremely toxic, they will “clean you out at both ends”.  Bunches of twisted branchlets, loaded with fruit, are very decorative and the plant is disappearing in many places because of the ruthless methods of market pickers.  Our stock is not from the wild!!  We have selected ‘stock’ plants which grow on site here and have chosen the best over the years for the most desirable characteristics.

Way back in the dark and mysterious past, many shepherds hung bittersweet around the necks of those sheep which were suspected to be under the evil eye.  I don’t think it is really necessary myself.  Save this bit of lore for your next trivia game.

Often planted as an ornamental vine for the showy fruits. A good climber on trellises, arbors, porches. Fast growing. Decorative berries and twisted vines make interesting projects.

You will need both male and female  plants to produce berries!  1 male can pollinate 4-5 female vines.  MUST be planted within 30 feet of each other.

Light: Partial to full sun. Best fruit in full sun.

First Editions® Autumn Revolution™ Bittersweet

First Editions® Autumn Revolution™ Bittersweet

A revolutionary breakthrough in Bittersweet culture. Imagine never having to wonder if you’re growing a male or female plant again? The majority of the flowers formed on Autumn Revolution™ are perfect, meaning that the flower itself has both male and female parts. In other words, you only need one plant to bear fruit. Perhaps because of this unique characteristic the fruit production is absolutely extraordinary and the berry size is twice that of the species. Should most definitely be considered for commercial production.  Truly an extraordinary improvement for this beloved native vine.  This variety does NOT require separate male and female plants.  Bears at a very young age, frequently the first year from a spring planting.

Culture is the same as standard American Bittersweet.
