These are wild Privet Berries and they are poisonous. Eating the berries of this shrub are only mildly poisonous to humans but eating them is still never recommended. There are many ripening along the roadsides now, along with the elderberries and I don't want anyone to be confused.A neighbor across the lake has a beautiful hydrangea paniculata in his front yard. I think it is called Pinky Winky! There are many names for this pink variety. There another hydrangea blooming in another yard that is the same shape with massive flowerheads but apple greenish colored. These are large bushy plants and very pretty.
