Wild Plants With Pretty Flowers And Orange Berries

One day I was passing by a row of shops where the corner lot was not occupied. I saw these wild plants with pretty white flowers growing beside the drain. I stopped to snap these photos.
The plants were about 4 to 5 feet tall.
As you can see, there are thorns on the branches and underside of the leaves.
I didn't touch the plants or feel the thorns.
I also noticed that there are orange berries on the plant. The flowers and berries are attractive but I kept my distance because of the thorns. I am not sure but these plants look like one of the Spiny Solanums or Nightshade plants.


 Every king in all the earth shall give you thanks, O Lord,
for all of them shall hear your voice.
Yes, they shall sing about Jehovah's glorious ways,
for his glory is very great.
Yet though he is so great, he respects the humble,
but proud men must keep their distance.
(Psalm 138:4-6, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. These look like the fruit that tastes a bit like gooseberries. My maid plucked those by the roadside once... but it was a dried plant and I didn't see the leaves or flowers.

    1. These do not look like gooseberries. I am sure your maid knows the difference.

    2. My bad, it should be "Cape gooseberry". AKA physalis.

    1. Thank you, David. I also wondered if they are edible to humans and animals.

  3. Such pretty flowers, but wicked looking thorns and leaves! I agree, the berries do look like they are of the solanum family.

    1. The thorns will prevent many from going near the plants.

  15. I agree, it really does look like a kind of Nightshade! Wise to keep your distance. Pretty, but pretty poisonous.

  16. Certainly has a deadly nightshade look about it, leave well alone!! Take care Diane

  17. So pretty! I am sure that I've seen similar plants in the wild here in New Zealand. Of course, I have no idea what its name is, either :)
