Nandina in flower

A species of barberry, nandina has lovely red berries among its bronze, purple, and red leaves in the fall. It's an invasive garden plant, and this spring a volunteer came up near the holly trees along the driveway. The flowers, borne in clusters, are barely an eighth of an inch long, and to me they look like tiny pale pink candles. When I took this picture, they were wet from an afternoon rain.
