I am impressed by the replies to previous posts asking for help identifying a plant! Please could someone help me with this one?

It has purple and yellow flowers in small clusters each flower being about 5/8" across, with 5 petals. Stems are quite wiry, the leaves have 1,3 or 5 lobes. The parent plant was growing in my mother in law's garden on the Yorkshire coast, this one is growing in our garden In the Midlands.

Thanks Benedict! Hi Jonathan hope you are enjoying Shoot?

We don't have this species in Shoot yet. Here are the other Solanum we do have listed. Cheers Nicola

Thanks, Benedict and Nicola. Amazingly fast reply! I thought the berries looked too attractive - at least the kids are grown up so they won't be tempted to eat them.
