Don't know that I've seen those, but they are pretty.
Not a berry expert but they sure are pretty!
They are pretty but I don't know what they are. I bet Rambling from Selma would know!We have messy ol Poke Berries everywhere.
They're too pretty to eat.
It's American beautyberry, what we call it and the books call it Callicarpa americana. It will grow in south Florida. I know that it is wild in Atlanta, but I'm not sure how far north that you can find in the woods.
Thanks tog! I looked it up.American Beautyberry - traditionally used by Native Americans for medicinal purposes. It is a natural insect repellent. Its berries can be used to make jelly and wine, and are an important food source for birds. The blossoms before the berries are really beautiful too. I'll have to remember to take a picture next spring.So, now we know!
Now after having a second look at yours, they are a bit different than the ones I noticed in my yard today. I'll have to take a pic and compare the two!
