Lonicera involucrata


It is a large shrub with attractive, glossy, oval leaves that give the shrub a shiny appearance. It produces insignificant yellow flowers in pairs which give way to dark purple to black berries that also grow side-by-side. The berries are technically edible but too bitter to be eaten by anything other than the birds.
