    I know this plant only since last summer. I had it already on my blog, but not as nice pictures as those yours. Have a nice Sunday.

  6. Det är en ny växt även för mig. Väldigt vackra bilder! Ser goda ut men Googlade den och kan läsa att den är giftig.

    1. Tack Ulla! Trots det läste jag att man kan använda unga blad som spenat? Känner mig inte lockad att pröva.

    1. Thank you Ruby! I read that the berries have been used to give colour to wine, but I wouldn't recommend it as they are poisonous.

    1. Tack fru Ranten! Helst ska man inte äta dem för växten är giftig fast en källa nämnde att unga blad kan användas som spenat.
