Solanum

The genus Solanum is perhaps most famous for the agricultural crops (tomatoes, potatoes, etc.) but contains many ornamental and even some geophytic species. The genus contains roughly 1,500-2,000 species of annuals, perennials, vines, shrubs and small trees from Australia, North and South America, and much of Europe. Many are toxic or have toxic parts.
