Need help identifying tree or bush found in woods
I walk frequently in a small woodland behind my home. This year I have noticed a small tree or bush that I have never seen before. It is short, the foliage seems sparse...the strange aspect of it is the berries it bears. They dangle from a strange magenta colored pod that opens into a starfish shape, the berries are an orangish red and hang from the edges of the starfish shaped pod. Anyone able to help me identify this? If this is the wrong forum to ask this question...please point me in the right direction. Thanks!!!
