Description for Horse nettle

Solanum elaeagnifolium (Silverleaf Nightshade, Prairie Berry, Silverleaf Nettle, White Horsenettle ) and Solanum carolinense L.(Horse nettle, Apple of Sodom, Carolina horsenettle, nightshade)

Silverleaf Nightshade gets its name from the silvery hairs that cover the plant, along with the nettle-like prickles. The leaves are 2-4 inches long, with wavy edges. Flowers are violet-purple or white, about 2 cm across, with 5 petal-like lobes that are joined at the base, forming a triangular shape at the tip of each lobe.

Horse-nettle is not related to true nettles, but rather to nightshade, tomatoes, and potatoes. The horse nettle flower has five broad, pointed petals that form a somewhat star-shaped corolla

Caring for Horse nettle

    The yellow fruits resemble small tomatoes and remain on the plant for months. They are said to be poisonous. The lavender, star-shaped flowers with yellow centers look attractive in the silvery foliage. But the plant is an aggressive, poisonous weed, spreading steadily from deep rootstocks; in a few states, it is classified as a noxious weed.

Typical uses of Horse nettle

Special features: Characteristics distinguishing horsenettle from other nightshades are its perennial spreading roots and prickly stems and leaves. Five thick stamens of Solanum carolinense seem to have a "beak" shape.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for an ornamental purpose.
