I was surprised no-one replied to your question in August.
I have to proclaim my ignorance; what is American Bittersweet?
It's highly unusual on this forum to not receive a response, so maybe no-one knows what it is.
Did you ever get an answer?
Best regards,

Celastrus scandens, American Bittersweet.
Looks like a good bee plant. Not found up where I live, sorry.
There is an invasive, Oriental Bittersweet that is causing some problems; unscrupulous or unknowing sellers calling it American bittersweet.
