are the berries of the red tartarian honeysuckle
poisonous? I have a two year old who plays in my front yard and I'm
always afraid she'll eat the berries. I'd like to be able to relax a
little if these berries are not toxic! Please tell me! Thank you so much!
Yes, it is poisonous; berries known to cause "mild toxicity in children".
