Mandrake

Mandragora autumnalis

Description:

Solanales, Solanaceae

Habitat:

Uncultivated lowland ground

Notes:

Despite what you’ve seen in the Harry Potter films Mandrakes don't scream when they're pulled from the ground although the belief goes back centuries. They do however contain a nasty trio of alkaloid chemicals which can seriously poison you.
