    Hi,

    I've a climbing plant on a pergola which I have always been cautious with as I believed it to be Deadly Nightshade but now I think I'm clear it is not. The leaves are too narrow and waxy although the flowers are very similar.

    Can anyone tell from the attached photos? It is budding but hasn't yet flowered - my recollections from last year are purple flowers with yellow stamens.
