25. Woody Nightshade
(Solanum dulcamara L.)

25. Woody Nightshade

Bittersweet is another name for this familiar plant of hedgerow and waste ground. Its long trailing stems make use of any available support. The dark green leaves are of various shapes, some entire and others deeply lobed at the base. The flower is purple, with a yellow cone, formed by the anthers, projecting from the centre. Bunches of orange and red berries appear in the autumn.
