Solanum rantonnetii or Lycianthes rantonnetii also known is an evergreen climber that grows quite quickly and belongs to the nightshade family (Solanaceae).

If you are looking for a permanent Mediterranean plant that blooms very abundantly and for a long time, then this is a good choice.
The leaves are dark green, about 3-5 cm long, 2-3 cm wide and oval and the edges are rippled edge.
In a very short time the climbing nightshade will completely cover a wall or pergola.
The elegant appearance of this perennial is a picture on a terrace.
Fine as a tub plant with some climbing aid, give in the summer during flowering regular water for an exuberant bloom.

The flowering starts in May and lasts until November. The flowers are violet / purple in color, star-shaped and have 5 petals. The heart of the flower is yellow.
If the plant is too big and needs to be pruned, do this during the winter rest. Firm pruning leads to an even more exuberant bloom in the following year.
Spend the winter in a cool place in the winter and give restrained water.
Winter hardness zone 9b (-3ºC).
