That is really stunning! I had no idea the berries were so colourful either.

Thank you, Mysore Blog Park.

The beans are almost like coffee beans.

These days we can find old fully grown "Chethi" shrubs only at old-traditional homes.

Ripe berries taste very sweet. I always had an affinity for those berries due to their color and sweetness.

oops!I'm sorry, I have no idea why my comment was attributed to the MBP community.

I'm planning to grow these mainly because they're such good butterfly attractants.

Thanks Kariyachan. I didn't know about the berries being sweet.

Sunita, do all colors of this flower attract butterflies? This plant is not so invasive as lantana which is a favorite of butterflies.
