Fruits of the Season

Autumn is primarily known for its colorful, changing leaves. But there are other processes at work during this time of year that transform buds into berries. On one of my nature hikes this past week, I took photos of all the types of berries I came across on foliage. A few I recognized, and many I have no knowledge as to what they are. In all cases, I think they are all beautiful.

Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina domestica)

Mountain Ash (also known as Rowan)

American Beautyberry

Oregon Grape

The rest of the photos posted below are unknown. If you have any idea as to what their plant species is, please feel free to comment.

  1. The mountain beautyberry particularly catches my eye.

    Goodness, I have no idea what the unknowns are. That does not happen very often. The second one looks like red elderberry, but the leaves are obviously not that. The last one looks like a huckleberry of some sort.

    Lovely images, but I’m afraid that I don’t do well identifying all those berries, especially the red ones. The American Beautyberry is gorgeous and one I’ve never seen before. I’m guessing that it’s not a local.

Thank you!
