The name twinberry refers to a unique pair of black fruit, which are surrounded by a deep red bract, or involucre. Another good choice for a rain garden or winter wet spot in your garden, twinberry will grow rapidly in moist soil. Delicate yellow tubular flowers that show up in early summer are attractive to bees and hummingbirds, providing nectar at a time when many spring blooming plants' blooms have faded.
