Unknown shrub

This is a shrub that I found growing a distance
from the rear entrance to my house. I picked
a sprig took it home and took a few photos.
The small white flowers come from bracts
situated around the flower stem and hang down
If anyone knows what this is I would like to

It is called a Leycesteria also known as a Himalayan Honeysuckle and Pheasant Berry. It is a great shrub, you can leave it big or cut it down every year, it does not mind. It grows easily from seed and it is one of my favourite shrubs. I have several and I would not be without them. Nice picture Smile
