Travellers Joy Clematis
American Bittersweet

Traveller's Joy Clematis is a species of flowering plant that is native to North America. This plant produces vines which are quite aggressive and can climb to heights of 10-20 feet. Traveller's Joy produces white flowers between July and September and typically grows on the edge of forests, moist slopes, fence rows and on streambanks.

American Bittersweet is a deciduous, woody, perennial vine with striking orange to yellow berries that persist into winter. Indigenous to North America, this vine has become so rare it is now considered a protected species.

Excellent for naturalization projects, American Bittersweet attracts birds and other wildlife. Please keep in mind that the plant is toxic to humans and should not be ingested. To ensure the attractive berries are produced, cross-pollination between a male and female plant must occur.
