I saw this in a planter outside RHS, it wasn't marked and gardening staff weren't available. It has very spikey black stems, and looks as if it is from tomato/potato family. I say this because it has little yellow star-like blossom, and little bunches of green berries. It was in a mixed planter, couldn't determine a scent and appeared to be about 3' tall.

Hi Penny, thanks for the plant id request. Just curious outside of which RHS - the RHS Wisely? Cheers, Nicola

It was at RHS Harlow Carr last week. Harlow Carr is near Harrogate in Yorkshire.

Possibly Solanum atropurpureum (Purple devil)

Thank you Annette - it has been 2 years I have been wondering about this on and off. You're definitely correct, I have no intention of getting one because the spikes are just too evil.
