Love those berries, pretty colour, bet you they are highly toxic too.

Hi Amy, I just put up a pic of a different variety of these, I think.... M. I looked them up the other day and found that they are related to verbena, and that some people consider this plant edible. But I would recommend doing some research before trying them. I'm not sure if they consider the berries edible or the leaves, and I'm not planning on trying them soon... They do live up to their name, very pretty plant.

Thanks Gardengem I will look at your pic. I would look into wether you could eat any part of it before I would try it .

My shrub is about 4ft. high , I think it need a good pruning it,s getting a bit straggely ( is there such a word ) I will have to be brave and tackle it !
