Thanks Yuko.
My Grandfather lived in an moutaineous area where purpurea was overnumerous. As a kid, I was always summoned not to touch it because of the toxicity... Instead of touching it, I guess I looked a lot at the flowers. It always triggers some memories.

Good call Naoh Citizen! I think your suggestion nailed it!

I agree with Yuko. We could go a little bit further and Id it as purpurea species. Caution: All parts of this plant are toxic.
