However, as is often the way, this American common name denotes a different
species to the one we know in Britain. There it is applied to plants of the
genus Celastrus, especially C. scandens, an ornamental climber with orange
fruit that is very attractive to birds. It is also used for a hybrid of
Californian lilac, Ceanothus X serrulatus, and, as "evergreen bittersweet",
for Euonymus fortunei.
