Common Snowberry (Symphoricarpos rivularis), fam. Caprifoliaceae.
Grows in some places of the city. Almost all the year round carries flowers or fruits (sometimes both). The fruits are inedible. People say that they have very unpleasant taste, so it is hard to be poisoned with them even out of ignorance. Occasionally, they are used to cure cracked skin on the hands.
