Solanaceae Gallery - the Nightshade family

The Nightshade family comprises some 2700 species of annual and perennial plants and includes many staple food sources such as potatoes, tomatoes and peppers as well as some deadly poisonous plants.

These thumbnail pictures have links to larger photographs and information about each of the species, their habitat needs and an identification guide.

We have used the scientific names to identify species in this table, but if you prefer to use common names we have also listed all species covered on the First Nature website in alphabetical order of Common Names...

There is also the option to see all species listed in order of Scientific Names or Botanical Families or Dominant Colour.
