What kind of shrub is this? It has dark red berries:What type of mushroom/fungus is this? It's about a foot across:Thanks for any help!
The first looks like a Yew bush. The second might be a type of shelf mushroom, but they usually grow on tree stumps or fallen logs.
The mushroom has a thick stem/stalk.Are yew berries poisonous? I ate a couple of these berries when I was a kid, and they didn't make me ill. They were sweet.
It's called the opee plant.
The flesh is edible, but the seed coating is poisonous, as is yew foliage.
