I've let this nightshade get real big. It does have nice form and it is in the weedy pole garden, after all.

Its flowers are white with yellow centers, its leaves and stems slightly to somewhat hairy.

These are the fruit. This weed should end up in my weed atlas, but is particularly hard to ID. There are several weedy nightshades, but I am willing to venture Hairy Nightshade or Solanum saccharoides. Are there any nightshade experts out there?


  1. Looks like you've got horse nettle there. But I'm no expert.

  2. That was one of the possibilities... The fruit I see now are black.


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
