Solanum Jasminoides, commonly known as Jasmine nightshade, is a beauty of certain grade. Have this semi-evergreen potato vine in your garden to add a striking enhancement in your cottage garden. It bears rich clusters of snow-white flowers with a bunch of golden stamens amid deep lush green foliage.
There is no reason to ‘not’ have this vigorous climber plant in your garden, except that it is toxic if eaten. Oh yes, these evergreen shrubs adapt well to survive even the coldest winters if planted with the right conditions.
This potato vine looks cheerful in full sun or partial shade planted in well-drained fertile soil. Add some sand at the base of the roots if the soil turns wet in winters. It will rarely demand any supplementary feeding, just add organic mulch to keep it healthy in the growing period.
You can train Jasmine Nightshade on trellis (tied up) or let them scramble through other shrubs. It will proudly extend its vines around your cottage garden or flower border and beds, but avoid planting it near pathways as it sends 1 metre long shoots inherited from its vigorous growing nature.
Pruning is required to keep the growth under control, cut back stems to avoid tangling. Enrich the landscape of your garden with Jasmine scented Solanum Album, the Jasmine Nightshade.
