Flowers on Saturday week 77

You might remember my photo for week 71 . Thanks to Mark I know now that my tree is called :
Chilean Potato Tree (common name) or Solanum Crispum Autumnale


I found some info on Wikipedia about that tree:  Solanum crispum is a species of nightshade that is native to Chile and Peru. Common names include Chilean Potato Vine, Chilean Nightshade Chilean Potato Tree, and Potato Vine. It belongs to the same genus as the potato (S. tuberosum). The flowers resemble potato flowers. Solanum crispum is a South American, perennial, semi-evergreen evergreen, woody-stemmed climbing plant climbing plant that has blue flowers  2.5 cm in diameter with a yellow ovary, producing very small poisonous purple berries in autumn.
