What the heck is this plant?

KatieflowersMarch 4, 2014

I live in Zone 5 Pocono Mnts. Of Pa. The area I live in once belonged to a farmer. We found out this year that we have rows and rows of high bush Blueberries. You can tell that he planted them there years a go. But we have this other bush that looks to be in a line (As in planted that way.) someone told me it could be a Goji Berry bush. Can someone please tell me what this is? Thank you.

Could you post a close-up pic of the fruit, leaves and stems? -That would help us nail it down for you.

Need a closer view to tell for sure, but it looks very like Berberis, possibly Berberis wilsoniae. Does it have thorns?

I'd go with Berberis as well.

here is another shot of it, I hope it helps. I can't thank you all enough for the help. It was planted in rows. Like the Blueberries were. Makes me think that they are edible's. she also loses her leaves in the winter, but not her Berries.

Still not really close enough - it could be Berberis but the drooping berries are looking a little more Goji-like. Can you get a closer view of the leaves and berries?

Hahahahaha Yeah I can get one of the berries, but not so much with the leaves, sorry, I normally take these shots in the winter because they are so beautiful with ice and snow on them. :)

I hope this helps a little more on what the Berries look like. I will try to crop the summer ones a little better and see what I can do to make them clear enough. I really do appreciate all the help you all have given me thus far. Thank you again.

It's Berberis for sure. I'll stick with my original Berberis wilsoniae ID, though that species will often hybridize quite freely.

No - some of them are used for jellies. Google 'Barberry Jelly'.

my default for berries... is that if the birds dont eat them over winter... they are probably smarter than me.. so i dont eat them ...
