Most of my photos of the blooms and berries are out of focus, that's one of the reasons I love this banner so much. It's so clear!
I remember the first year my plant made fruit. I had not yet learned to make jelly from the fruits so I just left them on the plant. In the dead of winter a Mockingbird stopped by every day to have his snack. I swear he looked into my living room window to say "thanks".
This plant provides food for wildlife, the fruit can be made into jelly and if you rub the leaves on yourself or your clothing it will repel insects such as mosquitoes. Great plant.
