This picture of the Hyosycyamus niger L. Family Solanaceae, was taken this July in Aussois, France ( by me).
It is a beautiful but very toxic plant and flower!
How can so much beauty be held by such a “deadly” plant. It is a dangerous plant, but was also used to relief great pain ( Ste Hildegarde).
It was also used in the past as a powerful aphrodisiac. ( Albert le grand)
It should not be touched, without cautioned, nor used!
Let’s just admire her eerie beauty through this photography.
Caution: this plant should not be used, nor ingested! It is a toxic plant.
