An introduced species to the US…it was originally brought over as an ornamental vine that quickly spread.
The berries are toxic yet beautiful…ranging in almost every color on the spectrum…but mainly blues and purples.
Fresh berries have a white fluid inside when squeezed…and as they age they turn white…hence the name Porceline.
