Solanum xanti 'Sugarloaf'

  • Solanum xanti 'Sugarloaf' chaparral nightshade
chaparral nightshade

This is a lovely low growing form of our native nightshade, reaching a height of 18 inches and spreading to 3 feet or more. Blue-purple flowers with yellow centers cover this plant from spring through summer and are followed by round, green fruits resembling little tomatoes. Great for pollinators. Provide full sun to light shade. An occasional pruning keeps it looking dense and healthy. May lose some of its leaves during late summer. Drought tolerant once established. Nightshades are poisonous so deer should leave them alone.
