asian bittersweet

Asian Bittersweet . . . (Celastrus orbiculatus)  A highly invasive weed of
North American forests. Upon ripening, the fruits split open, revealing three
red-orange arils that contain the seeds. Very similar to the native American
Bittersweet (flowers at tips), with which it can form hybrids.
