The name says it all both the foliage and the berries of this plant are extremely toxic. Deadly nightshade has a long, colorful history of use as a poison, but what many people don't realize is that the nightshade family includes common food plants, including potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants and chili peppers. In fact, all of these plants contain toxins usually in their foliage that can be harmful. In particular, humans and pets should avoid potato and tomato foliage and vines in the garden.
Out of all the flowers I saw at sunset, this one stood out the most. I am at the top of Mackerel Cove on Bailey Island waiting to see if the sunset was worth shooting and decided it made a better backdrop for these flowers.
