Delaware Wildflowers • Scientific names
Celastraceae — Bittersweet family
Not in my backyard! This is across the fence in our neighbor's yard. It's a male plant, so it doesn't make the showy fruit shown below.
This plant is a bad weed
in Delaware. The similar native bittersweet, Celastrus scandens
, is virtually gone.
White Clay Creek State Park -- Pump House Road
