Does anyone know if birds like the berries of this plant? I had completely forgotten about this plant but I just love it. I came across it in a school plant sale brochure, so if birds and critters like it, I will put it on my list!
Thanks!
Deb

Plantfiles says it is attractive to birds and/or butterflies . . .

Yep, they will do. American Robins will strip the berries in short order the moment they're ripe.

Also, did you see that some of the pictures in the database are from Grasmussen. So maybe he has some comments too.

Sorry, it won't grow in Louisiana, it's a subarctic plant
