Solanum shrubs

Solanum shrubsSolanum are showy greenhouse shrubs, some of which have ornamental foliage. The soil in which they are grown should be light and rich. Cuttings planted in sand under glass strike readily. The tender annual varieties of the Solanum may be sown on a hotbed in spring, and placed in the border at the end of May in a dry, sheltered situation, where they will flower in June.

The height of the Solanum is about one feet and upwards.
