Plant Summary

The dune nightshade, Solanum africanum, is a hardy creeper or shrub that produces attractive flowers in various colours, from purple to white, with yellow centres. It is endemic to South Africa and grows well in sandy soils along the coastal dunes. It is a food source for some butterfly and moth larvae, and its berries are eaten by birds. It is not known to have any human uses, but it can be grown as an ornamental plant or a soil stabilizer. It can be propagated by cuttings or layering and requires full sun and well-drained soil.
