One of the most fascinating plant families. A large and varied family with attractive flowers. Plants may be edible, poisonous, medicinal, decorative and sometimes all in the same plant! Many are tropical or sub-tropical but seem to tolerate our climate well. Some of the friends you will find here are peppers, eggplants, potato seed, ground cherries and tomatillos. However, this family also includes potatoes, tobacco, petunias, salpiglossis, datura, goji berry and more! Nightshade family flowers can be found in the Flowers and Decorative plants area of our listing.
