    Very cool indeed. Hopefully it will spread and multiply?

    Britesea, DW and I picked the red berries and planted them (if you look at the pic close you can see the berries) we did that for two reasons to keep others from finding the plant because it makes them harder to find without the red berries and to grow new plants. I understand that it takes 5-7 years for a plant to grow to the size pictured.
