It looks like a nightshade, either Atropa belladonna or Solanum nigrum, certainly of that family. Pull them up especially if you have children, they are poisonous and will cause terrible stomach upset if eaten in the best case senario.

Hey Janet, I did a search and just type this in the top. This site shows a pic of it and I bet this is what it is. I've never seen it before, and I live here in Ga. I found something this weekend, and it's called Beauty Berry Bush, but the berry's are a neon purple color and it is beautiful.Wishing your find would have been the same. If I can figure out if the berry's are the seeds for sure, I could share some with you. Also, thanks on the passion flowers. They looked fine!!!!

Thanks, Traci S

Hey Janet, I did see the pic and Thanks alot! It says the blooms are pink. That was one thing I was wondering, if the berry's were it, or if it flowered. I guess the berry's are the seed right? I have some if you'd like any. Not many, but a few. I'd be glad to share, especially since I was such a procrastinator on sending postage on the Passiflora. Just LMK!!! I've gotten things better organized now, and I am finally getting this DG thing and Love it!!

Thanks again, Traci S
