I have no clue what these are. They are about the size of a big sprinkle. There are no leaves just stems with these berries.

It looks a lot like garden huckleberry, but those berries sure are tiny for that?
There seems to be more than one type of leaf in your pic... Which leaf is attached to the plant / berries you are trying to identify?
If its the long, pointy, serrated one than I will stick with my first guess that it is part of the nightshade family. Otherwise, could it be hedera helix? (ivy)

That's the odd part there's no leaves attached to the berries. It's just a stem with berries.

Looks to me like the blue cranberry type of bush I planted
last year. Forgot the exact name, but this year it had tiny
berries clustered just like in your picture. The leaves should
look pretty much like those from a cranberry bush.

Maybe you could watch it more closely. I don't believe any plant can survive without leaves at some time during its growing season.

Not lantana. It doesn't survive Ohio winters.
Maybe you could check again.

The more I've looked, the more it's looked like it.

There's an Ohio Uni. publication that says lantanas have become wild there. Not common, but they create enough trash to let some of them overwinter.

That picture, the twigs look like it, particularly that one up the right of the picture, and some of those under it. Even the pointy dentate leaves bottom centre of the picture look like it, although they ought to look more crinkly like the leaves top left side of picture.


I'm still not sure, though.

Blue muffin cranberry plant, I believe.
Look up viburnum dentatum 'Christom'
