A bite of sweet followed by a bitter aftertaste.
A charming vine dotted with a perfect pop of orange.
The American Bittersweet vine is on the decline while the Oriental Bittersweet vine requires vigilance to keep it from becoming invasive,
but, what a sweet darling of fall.
I'm sharing ways that I've used fresh bittersweet in decor in the last three years.
A few years ago, I discovered that I could get it off of eBay.
In a couple of days, it come wrapped in tissue paper with a cute bow.
I was thrilled since it doesn't grow in our area.
I love the yellow casing around that gorgeous orange berry.
The curling tendrils are just too adorable.
I bought mine from a seller called The Happy Crow.
It makes a darling display with my happy crow in the garden room.
It's cute in my chicken feeder from Tractor Supply.
Sadly, it doesn't keep from year to year.
The berries and casings drop like crazy causing a little bitterness at clean up time.
Do you like bittersweet?
