. bittersweet vision, 2. Bittersweet, 3. Untitled, 4. Effects of time This is the wreath that I made from my Bittersweet.
As you can see or not see there is not a bit of beautiful orange Bittersweet flora on any of this wild wreath. And so is the reason it will be pulled from the yard. I collect my Bittersweet starter from a friends NC mountain cottage. I then was told for blooms I needed a male plant and female...OK....so I added another plant not knowing if it was male or female???? Well I must have guess right because the next year I had budding Bittersweet. It has been three years and each year I get less bloom and more WILD. It is an invasive plant but I thought worth controlling. Well I am thinking NOT!!!! So I gathered this wreath as my farewell to Bittersweet being gathered fro my yard. There is a very quaint mountain town Blowing Rock where a very dear lady sells bunches of Bittersweet....and what a great reason for a Sunday drive........so bitter sweet as it may be I say goodbye to my garden Bittersweet!
