@SongofJoy I'm pretty sure this image is not a goji berry but rather a Berberis. Could you look into this?

I can't locate anything right now. My DH is in the hospital with major problems - some potentially fatal. When I can, I'll check. Remove it if you don't want the photo. I don't care.
I garden for the pollinators.

Tee,

Take care of yourself and know that we are all thinking about you and praying for a good outcome for your husband. I hope that he will be out of the hospital and recuperating at home real soon.

DH is still in the rehab hospital having physical and speech therapy and I am gone most of the day. He should be home next week. So things are looking up. After studying the photo, I agree with Dave that it is berberis and not goji berry. I will find the correct attribution for the photo one of these days. Sorry for the delay. Sad
