CELASTRUS(BITTERSWEET)Family: CELASTRACEAE
About 30 species of usually twining shrubs or vines native to the Americas and Asia with small green, yellow or white flowers in racemes or panicles. Fruit is an orange or yellow capsule, opening to expose a fleshy orange, red or yellow aril which encloses the seeds.

CELASTRUS scandensSummer810
American Bittersweet8m  Zone: 4
Woody vine, native in thickets and along rivers from Manitoba to Quebec. Widely planted for its colorful fruits that are harvested for winter bouquets. Leaves turn golden yellow in the fall. Flowers in panicles. Golden yellow fruit in September. Easy to grow in moist soils. Climbs by twining and a sturdy trellis or fence is needed to support its weight. Heavily fruiting but needing two plants of each sex, or one plant of each sex from different species. This is the true species, not one of the (almost impossible to tell apart) Asian imposters that is so widespread in eastern North America. Seed wild collected in Ontario.

HYDRANGEAFamily: HYDRANGEACEAE
23 deciduous or evergreen shrubs, small trees or climbers native to China, Japan, Himalayas and the Americas.

HYDRANGEA anomola var. petiolarisEarly Summer1868
10m or higher  Zone: 4
Native to Japan, Korea and Taiwan this is a deciduous, clinging climber, very showy in flower. Dark green foliage. Brown, peeling stems are furnished with aerial roots like those of ivy. It presses itself hard against its support, needing no additional framework to assist it in the upward climb. Suitable for shady walls, tree trunks, large stumps or as a spreading ground-cover. Although happy in shady places, it flowers more freely in sun. Flower-heads are beautiful "lacecaps", the small fertile white florets surrounded by large, showy bracts, so the effect is quite bold.
Germination Instructions: Easy, warm germinator.

SMILAXFamily: LILIACEAE
Aa genus of 200 vines native to North America, Asia and the Tropics.

SMILAX herbacea New Late Spring3301
Smooth Carrion Flower90-270cm  Zone: 3
Here is a unique and attractive climber for the shade garden, almost unknown in commerce. Native to moist woods, thickets and meadows from Manitoba to the Maritimes and into the USA. This uncommon native vine climbs over other vegetation in the wild by means of tendrils. Foliage is clean and lovely; leaves ovate to heart-shaped, looking good all season and turning yellow in autumn. Clusters of intricate tiny green-white flowers form in a ball at the end of a flattened flower stalk in spring. These are followed by showy, large clusters of dark blue berries hanging on long pedicels, creating a very elegant effect. While it would be happiest (and grow tallest) in the woodland garden, it will adapt quite nicely to nearly full sun in average garden soil. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment required.
