This is the flower stalk and fruit from a shrub that is about 2 ft in height. I'd like to find out the name of this shrub and whether it's possible to harvest the seeds to plant?

Would appreciate any feedback you have.

Maybe Duranta erecta.

Islander,

Thank you for your reply and feedback. I've read a little more with the name you provided and it looks like this is the plant sample I have here. I've also learned that it is an invasive specie and the seeds and leaves are all toxic that could kill animals and small kids ... It certainly is a very beautiful plant, but I won't be planting it due to its toxic contents and invasive nature.

All the best and thanks again :)
