Ok, I have had bittesweet for nearly 10 years. Its a lovely vine and can be crafty too.
This is the first year though that I have had berries! (YAY!) Well I say that non chalantally of course becasue that there vine is horribly invasive! It can be tamed...yup, with Roundup and cutting and mowing, but it needs a large area to ramble! and for berries, you need TWO!
So hows yours hanging? Have you "trained" it? What do you do with yours?
Do you have the native or the asian? I received seeds in trade several years back and finally got blooms this year so I googled for more info and found that the asian variety is a nightmare so I enquire about it some more. Asian var. blooms in axis of leaves...natives bloom on tips. Unfortunately it was so hectic around here this year w/ DD and two grandkids in the house that I failed to note where blooms were located on mine and will not sell them until or if they bloom on the tips next year. "Nuff problems around here with kudzu w/o adding asain bittersweet to the mix.
