Another "Help identifying this shrub or bush with red berries!"


I know if I spent a few hours I'd probably find the answer, but you guys are so helpful!
Anyway, any ideas? Looks like each berry has 1 seed inside. I was brave and tasted one, kind of tart cherry like. I've seen some similar on the web, but the leaves don't match. They're growing about 5'-7' tall in southern Wisconsin.
Thanks for any help!

I think choke cherrys have purple berries and the name is Buckthorn which is an obnoxious shrub in Wisconsin.
I am from wisconsin and if that is a resent pic of your shrub, it looks like honeysuckle shrub.
I dont think it is a viburnum which looks simular.

It is red chokeberry. At this link, http://www.duke.edu/~cwcook/trees/arar.html, you can see the blossom and the tiny, edible red fruit. Great shots you captured, 52Caddy.

It is a Lonicera maackii. Is is also invasive or prohibited in many states of the US.

Hi all, I recently began the quest of finding out what this bush was as well. It is a variety of an Asian Bush Honeysuckle rather than a red chokeberry or chokecherry. The bushes berry at different times (the leaves aren't the same either), and mine is bursting with bright red, translucent berries right now (July), whereas the chokeberry or chokecherry berries later. Flowers are very similar to a honeysuckle flower as well. The birds, especially Catbirds, absolutely love it, so while I read that it isn't a native plant and can be invasive, I don't want to part with it. I just trimmed mine up into a tree and it looks fantastic, and it's nice not to have 10' diameter bush taking up my yard! Nps.gov and nature.org can provide more information. Hope this helps!
