Great for women. Bark is a relaxing sedative used to relieve cramps and spasms, like uterine and menstrual. Used to help prevent miscarriage, internal bleeding and heart palpitations. Might constipate a bit, good to take with mild laxative herb or plant. Acidic red berries can be eaten in small quantities, toxic when unripe. Safer to cook ripe berries. Don’t take tea for more than 3 days at a time.White 5 petal flowers- big ones circle around cluster of tiny ones. Leaves look like maple leaves, opposite on stem.
