Celastrus scandens ‘Bailumn’ (PP19,811)
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.
