A Bittersweet Tale

Mary Ann King is a South Dakota Master Gardener who enjoys finding out more about plants that grow locally such as the native vine bittersweet.

Bittersweet vine, which is not an invasive species in this area, can be cultivated for its winter display of red berries.

Thanks to Mary Ann King for sharing with Plant Exchange readers. See King’s article “A Bittersweet Tale” at this link
