The nightshade family (Solanaceae) has many famous plants. There are some very important food plants such as potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, chili and eggplants as well as many representatives from the areas of medicinal, narcotic and cult plants such as tobacco, henbane and mandrake.
Here we have dedicated ourselves to the somewhat mystical, magical and legendary representatives of the nightshade family, which are also often referred to as witch's herbs. This is certainly because all nightshade plants contain many active ingredients that can be poisonous to humans, which is why potatoes, for example, should not be eaten raw.

This seed set contains 5 different witch herbs:

  • Angel's trumpet (Brugmansia suaveolens)
    Tropical nightshade plant with wonderfully beautiful, fragrant trumpet flowers. Impressive pot plant.
  • Deadly nightshade (Atropa belladonna var. belladonna)
    Due to its high atropine content, it is a well-known medicinal and magical plant. The name 'Belladonna' (Italian for 'beautiful woman') comes from its pupil-dilating effect, which women in earlier times actually used for beauty reasons.
  • Forest tobacco, mountain tobacco (Nicotiana sylvestris)
    Forest or mountain tobacco originally comes from the moist, humus-rich mountain forests of the eastern Andes and is considered the ancestor of most cultivated tobacco varieties in use today.
  • Henbane (Scopolia carniolica)
    A rather inconspicuous medicinal and poisonous plant that was probably a component of old witch's ointment recipes.
  • Black henbane (Hyoscyamus niger)
    An ancient magical plant from the nightshade family.

One seed packet per plant variety.
