We will be rolling out several small fixes mid-day today (Jan 29.) We do not anticipate any disruptions or problems, but f you spot any unexpected issues after 12 noon (PST), please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.
The green leaves with yellow berries are a bird favorite. Small white flowers drop then berries come in their place. Grows 4 feet tall. Spreads easily.
Pond plant is 5 ft. at this time. Couldn't get good pic of blossom so I'll try to describe. Thin arching stem. Blossoms are very small. White on bottom and purple on the top. Feel buzzy. Thats the best I can do.
Tried to google it and found lots of pics but none of exactly what I have. Didn't realize there were so many species of Solanum/nightshade. Never heard of it actually. I will certainly keep my grandchildren and great grandchildren away from it just in case. It roots very easily and when I see a little one away from the main group I always pull it up and put in the garbage not my compost pile. Guess the birds or wind are dispersing the berries.
