Can anyone identify this plant for me?
It has small purple flowers.


Sue Cockayne




I will suggest Sambucus?

That was my first thought too, Drc. But Sue says 'Purple' flowers... Sambucus? Purple flowers? is there such a creature? :)

I will await further suggestions I think. Intriguing...

Is it not one of those large, shrubby Solanum thingys whose name always escapes me. The small lilac potato like flowers are followed by smooth green berries.

I think you might be right Andy the flowers look about right. I believe it is part of the potato family and the flowers and berries are the same. They cannot be eaten.

Hi Fractal sorry didnt see the purple flower bit, buy I have 2 solanum,in Crispum and the Jasminoides, the leaves are quite different to this. Yet its bugging me as I think I should know this.

You got it Andy - Sues herself has just post that it is a Solanum Laciniatum.
