Devil’s twine is a woody plant from the potato family which has small purple blossoms in July and elongated red berries in autumn that make this tall shrub so striking. The fruits of the Chinese plant are considered to be extremely beneficial to your health. Sadly, nobody knows where grandma Anna got this shrub, but perhaps it was a gift from a summer guest who stayed at the Wachter guesthouse.

While it is beautiful to look at, it also has a “devilish” side. With its many sharp thorns and tendency to grow rampantly, it gets up to plenty of mischief, especially underground. Some shoots can already be seen on the south side of the house and have even come through Thomas’ mother’s kitchen wall!
