Family:  Nightshade (Solanaceae)

(Huichol Tobacco) I’ve come across this plant growing spontaneously and wild in dry arroyos in Arizona and New Mexico.  It always stops me in my tracks and evokes great respect.  I can see why it is considered such a potent totem among the native people.  Huichol is a powerful ceremonial and smoking tobacco, making small leaves on long petioles. The plant makes multitudes of decorative, pendulous, yellow-green blossoms, flowering to 3 feet. Press tiny seeds into surface of potting soil and keep evenly moist until germination.  Sow in spring.  Once you bring a patch to fruition, it will probably volunteer the next year, springing up where you least expect it–a very independent plant!

    This Tobacco is so resinous that we cannot shake the seed in the usual manner (upending the seed head into a bucket) as the seed sticks to the flowers and leaves and we end up with — nothing!  So, we individually pluck each small, dry capsule in order to catch the little pinch of seed each time.  But the seed is small, and slowly accrues, and is so viable that a little goes a long way.
