(Lycium caralinianum)

Christmasberry is a delightful plant with tiny leaves that give off a musky odor when crushed. Blue or lavender-to-white flowers bloom in the fall and winter. Bright red somewhat elongate berries follow in the winter, hence the name, Christmasberry. Birds love to eat the ripe berries.
