solanum ellipticum

vivid purple flowers of solanum ellipticum, australian outback wildflowers

Solanum ellipticum IMG 8923 - This plant is closely related to tomatoes, capsicums, and potatoes but produces no edible fruit, and although its flowers are attractive, its leaf stems, with their savage spines, are a less appealing part of this Australian native plant that is often referred to as 'Prickly Nightshade'.
