An unusual deciduous climbing plant, Celastrus orbiculatus 'Hercules' has bright green summer leaves which turn lovely shades of yellow in autumn before falling. This is a male selection and although this will not fruit itself, it will pollinate nearby female Celastrus such as Celastrus orbiculatus 'Diana'.
