Chunghwa Post previously released three sets of stamps on berries. Now it is following up with a fourth set featuring Lycium chinense, Dianella ensifolia, Ampelopsis brevipedunculata var. hancei, and Diplocylos palmatus. The designs follow:

Island. Its small branches have thorny tips. It has elongated oval leaves and lavender flowers. Its berries are ovate and turn red when
ripe. They are edible.
2. Dianella ensifolia (NT$5): This perennial plant can be found on dry mountain cliffs or roadsides in low-elevation mountainous areas throughout Taiwan and occasionally in coastal areas. Its leaves are leathery and entire. Its flowers are mauve or white. Its berries are nearly spherical and turn mauve when ripe. They are not edible.
3. Ampelopsis brevipedunculata var. hancei (NT$15): It can be found climbing on shrubs on the plains and in mountainous areas throughout Taiwan. This perennial vine has sharp serrated leaves that are round or ovate with cordate leaf bases. Its flowers are chartreuse. Its berries are spherical with little speckles. The berries turn turquoise when ripe. They are not edible.
4. Diplocylos palmatus (NT$34): Found scattered in low-elevation mountainous areas throughout Taiwan, this annual vine produces palmate leaves and small yellow flowers. Its berries are spherical. The berries turn red with white stripes when ripe. They are not edible.
