Woody nightshade

Woody nightshade or Bittersweet (Solanum dulcamara) is a climbing plant that can be found in woodland and hedges. The berries are poisonous. It is a different plant from Deadly nightshade (Atropa belladonna). The leaves of Woody nightshade are not easily identifiable but there is usually a flower somewhere on the plant that makes the identity certain. It is unlikely that rabbits will eat the leaves, but it is better if they do not have the opportunity to do so.
