I planted a vine near my trellis that was labled a hummingbird vine, but I don't think it is. I have never seen such a vine before. The leaves are a dark green, and the flowers that it gets are very small white blossoms...but even stranger is the small orange berries (no bigger than a pencil erasert) that grow on it! Can you tell me what it is?

If the flowers occur in bunches together, and the berries are yellow/orange and then red on the inside as they mature, it might be a bittersweet vine (Celastrus).
