    So the app is telling me spicebish. Can anyone confirm? It's in a low lying bottom like most of my land.

    Yep, I was asking that exact question last summer. This picture was taken in July 2017.

    Does it provide any wildlife benefit?

    I've read the berries are consumed by birds and some small game like raccoons.

    It's quite prevalent on my property and grows quite well in shaded areas.

    Thanks. I took those with my video camera while I was hunting. Love carrying that little camcorder.
