Here I am with my beautiful display of bittersweet! The colors are so vibrant and fall-like! This display made me so happy! But with a name like bittersweet….it doesn’t sound like happiness. But lets take dark chocolate as an example of bittersweet…lol..that makes me smile for sure.
Bittersweet the flower is a sprawling woody vine that becomes striking in autumn when its many small fruits ripen. They are orange-yellow and split open to reveal a red seed called an aril. The vines can be used to decorate sorta like curly willow. Its very flexible.
