    I can't add to the stumpers because I'm not a long time member but I have a picture I think they might find fun. Would it be possible to add it to their forum? I think a caption of "Viscious vine" would be appropriate since it is Deadly Nightshade (Solarum dulcamara)

    Agreed it is Solanum dulcamara, though that's actually Bittersweet; Deadly Nightshade is a different species (Atropa belladonna)

    Too late on the Stumpers question though . . . you've already given the answer away . . . anyone who reads Stumpers can also read this :-)

    Yes, fish&ferns, I'm afraid you've already given this one away. Solanum dulcamara is sometimes also referred to as deadly nightshade (oh the problems of common names), but I think Michael is right, deadly nightshade would primarily refer to Atropa belladonna.
