Shrubby Nightshade is a medium sized shrub, growing up to 4-8 feet with velvety leaves and stems due to dense star-shaped trichomes present on all parts of the plant. Strong, straight or recurved flattened prickles up to 1.2 cm long may be found along the stems. The leaves grow 6-10 inches long and feature nine angled ridges along their perimeter. The plant blooms with small clusters of white to yellow-white star shaped flowers, followed by white or yellowish marble sized berries. Shrubby Nightshade is native to South America, probably naturalized in India.
