Japanese Silverberry

This is a large shrub native to eastern Asia, considered an invasive species here. The leaves are silvery in spring, but turn greener throughout the summer. The flowers are lightly fragrant. They’ll have red fruit that is edible (works well as a dried fruit) and has loads more antioxidant lycopene than tomatoes!
