The day was breezy and overcast. It was late fall and was very cold. We were happy to find our plant, Oriental Bittersweet, climbing the fence. We saw our plant rustling in the wind with the smell of a wet wildlife section blocked off for plants to grow in between the athletic fields. The Bittersweet had reproduced in many areas and we found 2 or 3 bunches in one area.We were surprised to find many bunches of Oriental Bittersweet that had completely taken over small areas. When we came back the next day and realized some of the bunches were dying out. We were lucky to see the root on one of the many plants. In the two days we were excited to find Oriental Bittersweet.
We found Oriental Bittersweet climbing the fence in between the athletic fields. The vines were very bumpy, woody, and round because it was fall.
We found a "bush" of Oriental Bittersweet on the rocks. We found that the red berries had a yellow skin like they red berries had hatched out of the yellow skin.
