Unidentified Flower


A friend of mine is trying to identify this flower. It's growing in a graden in Cailfornia. It has bright purple/blue flowers and what look like berries starting to grow. Someone thought it might be a Blue Nightshade, but the center is a different color and the flower color is much brighter. Any ideas?

Sallybee writes: From your pics it looks like a Kangaroo Apple to me (Solanum laciniatum or S. aviculare) or some other similar Solanaceae. They self sow readily in my garden here in Tasmania, Australia; I often find them coming up in far flung corners of our farm. There is some contention about whether they are edible; some people say they are, others say the fruit is poisonous. perhaps they aren't safe to eat until fully ripe? I haven't been game to experiment! Posted: 6:41 am on January 11th
