Hardy to zones 6 to 12
Sprawling perennial flowering in dense clusters, pentamerous, green spotted with brown, to a height of only 10 inches. The leaves are elongated, lobed. The malodorous flowers give way to large, flattened fruits. Highly sought-after by collectors of the nightshades, this is one of the darkest–beguiling, stinky, potentially toxic and without recorded ethnobotanical use. Cultivation: Soak seeds overnight in willow water. Plant in warm, well-drained mix, tamp, and keep at around 68 degrees F. Germination in 2-4 weeks. Plants prosper in full sun to part shade in fast-draining soil or rockery. Space 1 foot apart.
