Celastraus (Celastraceae) orbiculatus
known as bittersweet or staff vine, this vigorous grower has large
green leaves and performs best in partial shade to full sun.
Brilliant orange-red seeds become visible as its yellowish
fruit opens. No pruning
is required. However, if
pruning to maintain a size, prune after fruiting has finished.
A mature height of 14 m (46') is not uncommon.
