• Well, these were at the nature center in Cape Girardeau, so I didn’t pick them. However, after reading your comment, I googled what could be made with these berries. It turns out you can make quite a number of things including: jam, jelly, flavored vodka, and a mosquito repellent! Perhaps I should plant some!


    • I thought they were really pretty and interesting. The color was so bright. They are called American Beauty Berries. The formal name is Callicarpa americana.
