Celastrus






CELASTRUS SCANDENS.--Climbing Waxwork, or Bitter Sweet. North America,

1736. When planted in rich, moist soil, this soon forms an attractive

mass of twisting and twining growths, with distinct glossy foliage

in summer and brilliant scarlet fruit in autumn. The flowers are

inconspicuous, the chief beauty of the shrub being the show of fruit,

which resembles somewhat those of the Spindle Tree (Euonymus), and to

which it is nearly allied. A native of North America, it grows from 12

feet to 15 feet high, and is useful in this country for covering arches

or tree stems, or for allowing to run about at will on a mound of earth

or on rockwork.
