Please can anyone identify this plant, I have been told by its previous owner (who also dosn't know what it is) that it flowers and then has berries afterwards. Any help would be good. Thanks

    Thanks you very much, have looked it up and it does have all the traites of Phytolaccas Americana. In other words its a thug. Needs to say its going.

    I’ve seen phytolaccas growing in many lovely private and RHS gardens ... it never appears to be thug-like. Relatively easy to grow possibly ... but it’s not Russian Vine or Himalayan Balsam.

    Lovely looking plant, but toxic and invasive: it has to go!
    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    Many garden plants are toxic
