    I read that Rubus pedatus is native to Olympic NP, Mt. Rainier NP, N Cascades NP, West Gorge and Lonicera utahensis is native to our forests but I never seen them before.
    Thank you

    Really? I was thinking about testing rubus but not lonicera. Next time I would do that, I love to test wild berries!

    It is OK, anyway I would taste both when I see them. Actually I don't find Mahonia tasty but I can eat a few and I cooked some jam too. It smells nice
