-- Oriental Bittersweet USDA. NAL.
National Invasive Species Information Center.
Oriental bittersweet is an aggressive invader that threatens
vegetation at all heights in forested and open areas.
Oriental bittersweet grows fast; it can cover tall trees
in a season, causing them to collapse from the weight
of the vines. Understory plants are smothered by the
vines themselves or by lack of light.
