A friend has sent me this photo to identify, I recognise it but can't think what it is. Could you help please?

Himalayan honeysuckle or Pheasant Berry?

Ah, I think I have seen that on a thread before, perhaps that was what I was remembering. Thanks, Kate. Should she be worried about it?

Kate, just had a look at the previous threads on this, there seem to be mixed feelings about this one. Feel bad about duplicate postings now.

I have 4 in my garden all presents from the birds, one is getting quite large now but I would think that the seedlings are easy to pull  out.

This site is quite difficult to find old postings so I would never worry about duplicating a thread.

I think it is Leycesteria or Pheasant Berry, we have one in our garden which is quite attractive but seeds down profusely.

I have this growing wild outside my garden, thanks for the id- flowers are really pretty and I think they are good for birds as well.
