Hello , We have three of these plants in our garden. We think it looks like deadly nightshade but not sure. Can you help ? Thanks Sue Hookey

No, they're not nightshades, they're Hypericum inodorum varieties. There are several, H. 'Magical Red', H. 'Magical Beauty' being other examples. Nightshades are straggly climbers which produce, commonly, lilac and yellow flowers followed by red, turning black berries in autumn.

Looks like Hypericum androsaeum, Tutsan, to me.

Many thanks for your help, I am quite relieved to know they are not what I thought they were. Much appreciated Sue
