The common name of the Black Twinberry refers to the pairs of shiny black berries that can be found hanging near the base of the leaves. The pairs of yellow, tubular flowers are about 3/4” long and appear from April to August. The bracts which surround the flowers and later the berries, are red to purple, and form a shape like a shallow cup. (Portland Plant List, 2016)
