Solanum marginatum

9th September 2012

A large growing shrub from Ethiopia. It has become a weed in California and parts of Australia. I have it growing in the greenhouse and it has yet to be tested by a serious winter. The foliage was undamaged by the winter of 2013-14 though aphids have been a bit of a problem. Said to grow up to eight feet tall, I will have to take remedial action before that point.
