Solanum

By pamelajean
Thankyou for looking, for your interest, your comments and votes on my Royal Blue Coach.
There was going to be another Bus Running Day last Sunday, but it was cancelled due to the snow. So no more pictures of the vintage transport for the time beingSad.


Looking for climbers last year, I asked the man at the garden centre if he had a Chilean Potato Plant and he took me to the stand where the potatoes were. Oh dear! However, once we had established that it was called Solanum, he looked it up on his computer and offered me one at a distant linked garden centre. Then, soon after, I passed a market stall and found my plant.
With scaffolding erected in the garden for roofing works, it couldn’t be planted straight away. But once it had been planted, it flowered in great profusion as if to say......see, it was all worthwhile. The flowers carry on through the summer and into autumn.
It bears generous blue open clusters of flowers with bright yellow anthers, and is slightly fragrant.

The genus was established by Carl Linnaeus in 1753, and includes the potato and the tomato. It also contains the nightshades and horse nettles, as well as numerous plants cultivated for their ornamental flowers and fruit.

Pamela.
