Beauty Berry - any use?

jjdbikeSeptember 14, 2011

Hello

I have a small property that is well planted (i.e., starting to get full). I've commited to not plant anyting that isn't useful or attracive to wildlife, expecially hummers, butterflies or other bird spices. I have always loved the those bright purple beauty berries looked and have often been tempted to plant it. My question to you folks is does any of my targe species like it or use it for anything?

Thanks.

JD

Birds LOVE LOVE LOVE the berries and I've seen butterflies at the flowers. Don't know about the hummingbird aspect.
