$5.00

Belladonna (atropa belladonna), aka deadly nightshade, is a famous poisonous medicinal herb with a range including Europe, the British Isles, north Africa, and Iran known for its purple bell flowers, deadly black berries, and its importance in ancient and modern medicine. It makes a large attractive perennial for shade gardens and woodland gardens and is at its showiest from early spring to midsummer changing to shiny black berries and less foliage in the late summer and autumn.

Growing Instructions: sow directly in soil in the fall. Seeds must experience winter to properly germinate. Cold stratification for 4-12 weeks can force germination, but the success rate is lower than natural sowing. Belladonna seeds have a low germination rate, but can be propagated from plant cuttings. Seeds prefer to be planted in freshly disturbed soil in full to partial shade. Do not over water in summer even if the plants wilt from heat. Not suitable for indoor container gardening.
