This is Bittersweet Nightshade, not Deadly Nightshade. The two are related but only superficially similar. You might want to take a look at this earlier post: "Can anyone identify these 2 plants?"

These are both nightshades, although they are in no way related to each other, nor are they poisonous. On the left is Enchanter's Nightshade which is a troublesome plant related to Fuchsia and spreads by thin white rhizomes. The other is Bittersweet Nightshade, which is a potato relative and grows as a strong vine but is also capable of spreading underground.

Thank you Pauline, I knew it was unlikely. Good luck with keeping the blighter from overwhelming your perennials!

This is lathyrus latifolius, also knwn as the everlasting pea, because, unlike the Sweet Peas you grow from seed each summer, they spring up again each year after dying back in winter. My garden is infested with them. They pop up amongst my herbaceous perennials and smother them if they get a chance.
They are certainly not endangered. I wish they were, at least in my garden!

Endangered sweetpea?

Question from Khechog

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi, when I looked up this flower, snapped on a local walk, on the ‘PlantSnap’ app, it said it was an endangered sweetpea. Can anyone tell me if this is correct?

Thank you.

Re: possible toxic plant needs ID

These are nuts which are germinating. It's hard to tell from their manky condition, but my money's on them being acorns, or maybe sweet chestnut. If there's a chestnut or an oak tree nearby then that'll be where they've come from.

Re: Is this s Salvia

Message from Nic Jennings

In forum: Identify a plant

This is a night scented flower, if the temperature there is warm enough after dark it exudes a beautiful sweet aroma. The flowers can be any combination of yellow, pink and white or just one colour.
They grow wild all round my village here on Crete and the local council decimated them a couple of weeks ago in a "Strimmer clean-up" much to my chagrin.

Re: Red shrub

Message from Sylnoura

In forum: Identify a plant

Although it's difficult to see the plant's stems and weather the leaves are opposite or alternate, I'd guess it's either a Nardina or an Itea Virginica sweetspire. The latter would have remnants of the drooping long flowers which in your case are not seen, so the former is more likely. I might be wrong though.

Re: What kind of plant?

It is a sweet looking thing. But it can be a bit of a thug. So if it comes up where you don't want it - pull it out when small. Overwhelmed my broad beans one year because I am too soft-hearted.

If the fruits turn bright red, it could be Sarcococca humilis - sweet box.

Hi Ewan some helpful replies from our followers again:

"Deutzia I can't remember other name."
"It is one of the Deutzias, methinks. There are umpteen hybrids in circulation, flowering at slightly different times in spring/summer and all slightly different shades of pink/rose."
"Possibly Deutzia ningpoensis or in the family. Definitely in the Family - Hydrangeaceae and Genus - Deutzia."
Hope that helps?

It doesn't look like a sweet pea but would be easier to identify with a picture of it growing, as you say, along the ground.
