Notes:

near stream bank in Parkwood Park ravine in Decatur, GA. can’t really say much more than the 2 photos show…i believe someone brought up the word honeysuckle, but not sure if they were questioning this plant’s identity with that word or referring to another plant. Just a large, brushy plant with bright red berries in clusters like this.

    Amur honeysuckle….generally considered an invasive weed. Not as bad as Chinese privet but close.
    The berries are eaten by birds and distributed far and wide.

    Thanks Walter! I just found a great article on this plant:

    So do you have an idea of the “Big-leafed Tree” I posted a few days ago; no one has IDed it yet. I think it’s a red mulberry but just wanted to get a confirmation or not. Thanks!
