Today’s ‘Poisonous Plants 1-2-1’ video is about Solanum dulcamara, woody nightshade. It is also known as bittersweet but, as the video explains this is another example of how a plant’s common name can cause confusion.
The point of this video is, mostly, to introduce the plant and set-up a later video comparing it and Atropa belladonna, deadly nightshade. I haven’t made that video, yet, but I do have a number of others ready to upload so you may have to wait a while for the comparison video.
For now, you could always open two windows and watch the earlier video about the deadly nightshade alongside this one of its woody relative.
