A small shrub like plant of the Nightshade family. This beautiful plant is highly toxic. The plant has small purple bell shaped flowers about an inch in length, as the year progresses the flower opens and a small green berry appears. As the berry grows it will steadily change colour until fully ripe, when ripe it is a shiny black berry around the size of a cherry.
