This plant has to go, aseed was dropped by a bird maybe and is in the wrong place, it has got so big and is crowding my other shrubs out.

It has really pretty flowers. I was checking my front borders this morning hoping a bird left me a such luck.

You can eat the berries when they ripen. They taste like caramel.
