In July and August, bees are attracted to the white, funnel-shaped flowers which are partially hidden by a leaf-like, purple bract. Later, blackbirds enjoy the ovoid, dark-purple berries which are produced in October. It is causing conservation problems in New Zealand where it has become an invasive weed but there is, happily, no sign of this happening in Britain.
