  1. oriental bittersweet

    Oriental bittersweet, scientifically known as Celastrus orbiculatus, is a perennial, deciduous, climbing or trailing woody vine of the Celastraceae family, native to East Asia. It is well known for its small, round, brightly colored orange-yellow fruits that open up to reveal red berries. Often used as a decorative element, this plant has become invasive in North America and Europe, as it grows rapidly and overtakes native vegetation. Its high adaptability to varying environmental conditions contributes to its invasiveness.
