Myrica pensylvanica
Northern Bayberry

The small fruits of Northern Bayberry, being green in Summer, mature to silvery-gray and are found in tight clusters on the second-year twigs in Winter (and may even persist on the third-year branches, but tend to have a blackened color by this time). Again, foliage abscission is essential in order to see the full impact of the fruits on bare stems in Winter.
