    I don’t know, the specific epithet seems pretty fun to say… amplexifolius. The genus kind of sounds like a sore throat though.

    We seem to have the var. americanus here in Connecticut. Something new to look for in the woods.

    I love this native….and didn’t know that “Twisted stalk” refers just to the little peduncles. Fabulous photo!! It’s a photogenic plant, but this image really excels. 🙂

    Yesterday I was in Rocky Mountains near Canmore, Alberta and picked some Twisted Stalk berries. They had a very bitter and very sour taste, even one berry upset my stomach. Could they have been underripe, even though they were soft? Or, do you think they lack sweetness due to the drought Alberta has been experiencing for the past few years, including this past winter/spring?
