In Our Garden: Rhamnus Calif Leatherleaf, aka Coffeeberry

How can you not like a plant named Coffeeberry? Too bad it’s not really a coffee bean plant. I first saw this plant several years ago when we were on the Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour. It was a full grown bush, taller than me, in full bloom and just gorgeous. I knew I wanted one someday. Now we have seven of them. The berries start out green, go to red, then black. Alas, they are not edible. This bush is good for birds and butterflies.
