What is this vine?

I saw this growing up a tree on the side of the road. The yellow/chartreuse color of the leaves makes it 'pop'. It is also covered with clusters of tiny white flowers, no fragrance`. Want to know what it is before I try to dig some up and plant it in the yard. Don't want anything invasive--all those little flowers--lots of little seeds.

Celastrus scandens?

Looks more like a Euonymus sp. to me. Leaves appear opposite.

Thanks, after reading about it-it is a bittersweet but I am afraid it is the oriental bittersweet and it is considered invasive. I am going to see what color the berries are in the fall and then go from there.

**I looked closer at the flowers and they are all 4 rounded petals and bittersweet is 5 petals. Could it be something else or just a variation in flowers???

I'd say Euonymus too. Could you show a clearer picture of leaves and stems? The colour could well be due to a nutrient deficiency.
