    The plant is Solanum Laciniatum or common name kangaroo apple from Australia.

    Looks like anemone nemerosa, how large is it?

    Thank you Paul & Valerie Guppy . I'm certain Solanum laciniatum is a correct one . Must find room for this beauty somehow .

    Thanks Jim Edwards for responding to my query . Think Paul & Valerie Guppy is correct for identifying this app 2x2 meter shrub as a Solanum laciniatum .

    Thank you for the confirmation, much appreciated . Could I ask where have planted your Solanum laciniatum and what's the size now ?

    Nice plant best described on shoot gardening as tender shrub best grown as annual, easily propogate from seed, so grab some seed heads this back end.
    They're poisonous so don,t eat the kangaroos.
    Too cold for them up here but will do well in town garden.
    Naturalised in Australia so google it and check out the anbg web site for full details.
    Good luck Jim

    Thanks Jim Edward for the information of this attractive shrub. On second thought I'm abandoning the idea of having one in our garden just now . It's far too large and we don't have the room for one .

    Just thought it worth mentioning. I have downloaded an app called my garden answers. Part of what it does is identify plants from a photo to take on your phone. So far I have found it a great help.
