Climbing Vines

Bittersweet Autumn Revolution
Celastrus scandens 'Bailumn' PP19,811 -- The majority of the flowers formed on Autumn Revolution™ are perfect, meaning that the flower itself has both male and female parts.

Perhaps because of this unique characteristic the fruit production is absolutely extraordinary and the berry size is twice that of the species.
