This is the only picture I have - sent from a friend. Grown in her parents watered yard in the desert south west. Non native. Any ideas?

I have no knowledge at all of your region but to me that looks like Rubia tinctoria - Madder. It is a lax scrambling vine which covers other plants. Is that a possible candidate in your area?

Here is a link that might be useful: Madder

Perhaps the previous owner was a dyer? (Or someone in the neighborhood.)

floral_uk and missingtheobvious I think you are right! I would have never figured it out (and I tried with a good half hour of Google researching "shrub with tiny blue berries, non-edible"
Thanks :)
