Bittersweet is perfect for fall decorating, and the extra-large berries of this cultivar make DIY a breeze. Indeed, you’ve most likely seen bittersweet decorations—beautiful wreaths bursting with holiday color. They’re also simple to make: just twist the flexible vine around itself. The berries dry with their vibrant color intact and remain firmly attached to the vine, ensuring that your wreath or dried arrangement can last throughout the season. To get berries, you usually need both a male and female bittersweet, but this variety has “perfect flowers,” so you don’t need a pollinator. Unless backyard birds discover the berries, they can provide winter garden attraction. In the winter, the thick cover of the branches provides shelter for birds, and in the summer, it provides a place for them to construct nests. Allow space for Autumnal RevolutionTM to grow because it is a fast-growing and large plant. It’s a well-behaved native cultivar, not the invasive oriental bittersweet. You can expect all of the advantages of growing a native plant, including drought tolerance, pollinator attraction, and rapid growth. PP19811 Celastrus scandens ‘Bailumn’
