I was amazed at the recent craft show with the beaty of bittersweet. Although this plant grows in wild, would I be able to buy a plant through any nursery and make it grow? We live in central Ontario. (zone 4b). I truly appreciate your answer. Thank you.


Asian bittersweet is highly invasive.

Check with your local nurseries and local agricultural extension service.
