Nightshade flowers



Solanaceae is a family of flowering plants that includes a number of important agricultural crops, although many species are toxic plants. The family is also informally known as the nightshade or potato family. The name of the family comes from the Latin Solanum "the nightshade plant", but the further etymology of that word is unclear.
