>    In mid July I spent some time in the Boundry Water Canoe Area in
Northern

> parviflorus. What a lush plant with foliage that has a tropical feel. The
> leaves are huge with terminal clusters of large white flowers. The berries
> where much larger than most rasberries. None where ripe. I was wondering
if

> much count I would love to grow this for the follaige. It would look great
> in the garden.  One appealing aspect is that seems to be able to tolerate
> some  shade. I kind of think coming from the North Woods that it might not
> survive our hot and sweatie summers of the midwest.
> Any thoughts on this species.
