Edible or not?

Hi, my daughter has this growing in her new garden and would like to know what it is and whether it might be edible. Thanks Valerie

    That looks like Hypericum Androsaemum, Tutsan. Those berries are definitely not edible.

    I agree with Hypericum.
    Why anyone would want to eat an unknown berry is beyond me.
    How can you lie there and think of England
    When you don't even know who's in the team

  • Good grief, she wasn't about to eat it without knowing what it was. That's why she asked me to find out. Give me some credit for not raising an idiot 🤦

    Thank you
  • We've got similar but bright red. No inclination to eat them here neither.

    They're red and glossy/opaque to start with - and look very similar to Viburnums, then turn black. 
    It's the only time that plant looks good IMO.  :)


    Your daughter did the right thing in asking @valerieroberts   :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....



    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
