 I have come across this plant and I am unable to identify, not sure whether I should get rid or move it. It measures about 4 1/2 ' high the flowers are really quite pretty, the stem resembles abit like bambo.

It is a great plant, although it does self seed a lot but really easy to pull out. The blackbirds love the berries.
