Solanum aviculare, 20 seeds
Natvie to New Zealand and Australia, this evergreen member of the Solanum family is for those gardeners who like big plants, and who like big plants quickly. Very fast growing with a small seedling of 6" attaining 4 feet by end of the season, Solanum aviculare forms a bushy tree clothed in extremely handsome, huge, dark green, elegantly divided leaves. Blooms repeatedly from spring through summer and the relatively large, purple flowers are recognizably shaped like those in its family. Oval green fruits follow, and ripen to orange. 8 feet tall, 6 feet wide. Full sun to part shade. Rich, well-drained soil. Regular watering. Hardy from zone 9 onwards. Exclusive fresh seeds, harvested 08/2017.
