    Nope, but not a bad guess.

    The fruit on this plant isn't red.

    Cha. Oops, that is if you get the other stumper with the bell-shaped white flowers and chocolate stamens. It is interesting that there are no photographs of this lovely plant on a google image search; looking forward to seeing the flowers. It reportedly gets blue berries in the fall.
