Solanum dulcamara

Solanum dulcamara

Common name climbing nightshade, bitter nightshade
Family solanaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers purple/yellow (summer)
Size climbs to 10'
Light sun-part shade

Vining weed whose dark green foliage usually hides fairly well between other plants, until first the flowers, and then the bright red berries, draw our attention. All parts of the plant are poisonous, the green parts more so than the berries.
