No idea, it would be a help if you would turn the picture on its side. It looks oriental, very unusual.

It is Leycesteria Formosa ( Pheasant Berry) A much maligned shrub but I like it. It is easy very ,attractive with it's earring like flowers. Easy to grow seeds itself everywhere. Most people think it is COMMON!!!! Grows easily from cuttings too.

Very sorry - but I hated this shrub when we inherited three in the garden here - and Henry kept eating the berries! So they were dug out and disposed of. One, however, has grown itself amongst the Vine on top of the stream wall where I can't reach it - so there it will have to stay!
