This has been on the market since ’09 and is a revolutionary breakthrough in bittersweet culture. Bittersweet is one of those vines that require both a male and female plant—but not this one! Autumn Revolution has complete flowers, meaning the flower has both male and female parts! For whatever reason, the berry is twice the size of the species and the fruit production is extraordinary and prized by florists—the florists who saw this vine were awestruck. The berries retain their color when cut and used in dried arrangements. This is a very hardy vine suitable for all parts of Wyoming. Great screening vine!

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
