Deadly Nightshade & Potato Vine

Posted: 11/06/2016 at 21:00

If everyone used the proper names for plants we wouldn't have a problem knowing which is which

Solanum dulcamara is known as woody nightshade, deadly nightshade, bittersweet and probably others as well. It looks a bit like a smaller flowered, weedy Solanum crispum. If you have a vigorous, bushy plant you have Solanum crispum. 

Atropa belladonna is what is more often called deadly nightshade and is your first photo.

Don't eat any of them

clematis climbing on a gutter?

Hi iamto. I think you'll need some wire or trellis. Clematis need something smaller than a 3 inch pipe to wrap their tendrils round.

It's a willowherb but I don't think it's rosebay. Looks more like Epilobium hirsutum, Great Willowherb

not that it makes much difference, above comments are still true.
