Plant of the Month: Autumn Revolution™ Bittersweet

Bittersweet is a beloved vine in colder climates throughout the US and Canada. The struggle for the home gardener is that you need 2 plants, male and female, to create berries. That makes it tough, especially if you have a small space garden. A revolution in decorating the yard with bittersweet came in the form of Autumn Revolution™ Bittersweet. This vine creates "perfect" flowers, meaning that it is both male and female and can create it's own fruit! On top of that, the berries are twice the size of the species. This variety was discovered in cold zone 4 Minnesota, but is also hardy up to zone 2 and to warm climates in zone 8. Plant in full sun for the best results. Want to learn more or see more photos?
