    That’s my first thought too ... but a clearer pic would be good 😊

    I agree with Leycesteria too.

    yup, I'm sticking with leycesteria formosa
    Devon.
  • Fantastic, thank you! As long as it’s not Japanese Knotweed!  Which, from the little I know has quite different characteristics? 

    Is Leycesteria Formosa and nice one to keep?

    It's nice if you keep an eye on it. It can get bigger and bigger and become a beast, but kept under control and pruned to remove old wood , it's  fine plant. It seeds about so watch for babies.
