The flower buds are pink when closed, and the open flowers are white, cream, or yellowish. Each flower has small, recurved petals and a star-shaped axis of five white stamens tipped in yellow anthers. The flowers are fragrant and visited by butterflies. The fruit is a bright red or sometimes purple drupe containing 3 to 5 seeds. The stems, roots and foliage are poisonous, and the berries can be toxic or cause nausea if eaten raw but are reportedly safe to eat when cooked.
