|The purple variety, which is the kind that is seen in Nature.|
|And a white cultivar.|
Also, in the past, the birds usually started with the white berries and stripped all of them before they moved on to the purple. Not this year. They are showing a distinct preference for the purple. Mockingbirds, robins, cardinals, grackles, even wrens and chickadees have been observed eating them. So far, I haven't noticed a single bird eating the white berries.
|But they sure love the purple ones! Especially the mockingbirds.|
|And the robins.|
I don't think these berries are going to last until winter this year.
