Solanum atropurpureum Solanum atropurpureum Solanum atropurpureum Solanum atropurpureum
Stock Number: 55489
Availability: Out Of Stock
Family: Solanaceae
Cultural Code: HH CGH what's this?
Price: $6.50

From Henning comes this tender 4' perennial with dramatic purple spines and bright orange red cherry sized fruit quite prolifically produced if grown in full sun. The price reflects not its rarity, but the damage it inflicts on our shipping staff when they try to wrap this prickly misery and tuck it into a box to ship.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
