Red Robin shrub

It sounds as though it's dead or dying. I don't know why. Drowning has been responsible for some deaths this last winter, I've had some otherwise unexplained losses.

I doubt if it can be revived. Green under the bark isn't proof of life, only that there was life until recently.

You don't mention leaves. A plant can live without flowers but not leaves.

Has it  got any?

If the roots were tightly packed and wound round in circles then it would be a good idea to do that

If in doubt watch it, enjoy it but don't eat it would be more my take on it Mike

It's perennial so will end up with a big root.

Mine has become very shaded, the hazels are due a coppicing next winter, I never see red berries. That will be why I still only have one plant

The other plant that's called briony, white briony, Brionia dioica has a root that looks like one of those long white radishes, mooli. I have lots of those and I do get berries.l
