As Rick says, the plants I showed are herbaceous. Here are two pics of my aralia tree, Aralia elata. It is very late flowering but the warmest years it manages to produce berries like the other aralias do. The stem and twigs are covered by spines but not as thorny as roses. Now the tree is about 6m high.

Oh my, those beautifully sleek wild creatures - cedar and bohemian waxwings - described as "greedyguts"... ?!?  One would think it was them experiencing an epidemic of obesity, rather than we Homo sapiens!  ;D ;D

Well, I have never seen an obese waxwing but I have seen'em drunk! They eat fermented rowan berries and can't fly afterwards. What's more, they (and the blackbirds) steal all my berries.
