Yep, definatly not a venus flytrap...  But I'll tell you what I think it is...  It or should I say they look like a Salvia species and the possible square stems and the light veins would suggest Salvia divinorum.  This species if it is that is normaly propagated from cuttings and hardly ever seed.  Interesting...

Was very intrigued by this and decided to google it. I think AlanPH is spot on. Sounds as if it could have just about the same effect as cannabis! Wonder who the seller was.

There is one call callicarpa americana Welch's Beauty

 But I can't find it on any UK sites, don't know if it's only available in the US. Apparently it's a native of the USA.

Hi RubyLeaf

The callicarpa you want to ask for at your garden centre is

Callicarpa dichotoma
(Purple beautyberry)

This is the purple one. Actually, the flowers are very insignificant, it's the berries in autumn that are so pretty.

Strange you should say that, no you are not alone, I thought the same too! A bit off, I thought, and I'm not even in the UK!
