This is growing in woods behind my house. It has beautiful purple berries that open into a cap for three to four bright red berries. It is just loaded with this purple and red display. I’ve never seen anything like it before and am thinking of moving it to my yard.
Please somebody tell me it isn’t a poisonous or invasive plant because it is really beautiful.
