Every year I lose most, if not all of my red Sarr flower buds and I think birds mistake them for red berries. *The buds are snapped off cleanly and often still lying in the pot or nearby. *But when I had S. flavas, their yellow buds were never bothered. *That's why I think it must be birds, since this time of year they go for red fruit and don't bother with yellow. *Dirty, disgusting, filthy, lice-ridden birds.
