Spring Flowers, Tucson, Part 35: Silverleaf Nightshade (Solanum elaeagnifolium)

A super prevalent “weed” in the West, Silverleaf Nightshade is stunning. First of all, the thorns: as soon as these plants started coming up I was fascinated. What a determined species! But then they put out these gorgeous flowers and I officially fell in love with them. [Link to Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.]
