Ok. I do not know the proper words to describe plants (hence google failure) but hope someone will recognise it....

I have a bush-type thing, about 7 ft high. stems are sort of green bamboo type thing, not woody. flowers are v unusual - looks like a fuchsia but sort of in a chain, so 4 flowers all inside each other. flowers are creamy with red bit at the top. Turns into dark red berries.

Anyone know what it is??

Thanks in advance

(sorry over effusive use of exclamation marks but you cannot IMAGINE how long I spent trying to google it)

I've got one of those too !!! In fact I've had one in the garden of my last 3 homes and I've never planted one - they just seem to appear smile
