Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow — this is what we usually call this medicinal shrub. Most rural folks use the fruits to deworm intestinal parasite,s and the leaves for skin ulcers and boils.  Some people plant this because of its vibrant and fragrant flowers, and refer to it with a pretty name — Chinese Honey Suckle.
