Solanum carolinense - Carolina Horse Nettle, Bull Nettle, Devil's Tomato

The blossom of Carolina Horse Nettle is white to pale violet with long yellow anthers.

Solanum carolinense - Carolina Horse Nettle, Bull Nettle, Devil's Tomato. Not a true nettle, this is a member of the nightshade genus which includes the garden tomato. The Solanaceae family includes the Irish potato. In spite of the edible cousins, do not eat any part of this plant; as with most nightshades it is highly poisonous.

In spite of being a native plant, the deep-rooted and persistent Solanum carolinense is listed as a noxious weed in 7 of the 44 states where it is found.
