Love this plant and so do my birds!
I noticed you have a white variety as well as the standard, Dorothy! I had not idea that it could look so pretty!
I love this bush. We had a stand out in the woods, but I think the drought this year killed a lot of them. I just love those purple berries. They look almost unnatural, they are so pretty.
You had a natural stand, Holley? I've never seen one and would love to! I feel sure the birds have planted plenty in your woods to grow again.
such lovely berries. Can you eat them?
The berries get mixed reviews as to toxicity to humans, but many reliable sources maintain they are safe. I even noticed some jelly recipes, so someone must be eating them! But I think I will leave mine for the birds.
Beautiful Anastasia!! I love the beautiful bright purple berries, they really stand out in the garden.Check out a couple pictures I posted: Beautiful ColorMichael
