Twinberry honeysuckle – one berry best left for the birds and the bears

Twinberry

 

The berries are eaten by bears, small mammals, quail and grouse, and song birds such as thrushes. The flower is a source of nectar for hummingbirds and butterflies. The plant is host for the larva of certain butterflies.
But they’re not edible for humans. Best to tell the kids they’re poisonous.
