Lycianthes rantonnetii Is the Botanical name for this lovely Blue shrub or climber. It has blue/purple flowers with a yellow centre and flowers appear in masses in the warmer months. It is suited for temperate and warm climates, and grows best in a sunny position. The growth habit can be variable.... if trimmed regularly, it can retain a bushy habit, but if allowed to go wild it will be more a climber and scramble over a trellis or fence. Don't be tricked by it's name, it does not grow Potatoes , and the plant is poisonous. i took these photos in a garden in Northern Sydney.NEW1 173.JPG

Native to Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, and Paraguay, the blue potato bush is cultivated all over the world for its beautiful deep purple-blue flowers. If you’ve ever seen it bloom, you won’t forget it. The Royal Horticultural Society gave Lycianthes rantonnetii their prestigious Award of Garden Merit in 2012.

The blue potato bush is a fast growing evergreen that will grow to as much as ten feet in height and width. Typically they are pruned back to a much smaller size. They can be pruned to almost any shape and are often trimmed to a round shape with the lower foliage clipped, thus resembling a small tree.

Although this plant is called "Blue Potato Bush", and it is botanically related to edible potatoes, it is grown for its ornamental beauty only. No part of this plant should be consumed. Blue Potato Bush produces an abundance of charming blue flowers over a long season. It's very showy, fragrant, easy to grow, and a magnet for bees and hummingbirds!

Choose a location that will allow roots to spread and branches to grow freely. Space plants far enough from building foundations, walls, and decks so that the growing foliage won't crowd the structure. Consider whether tall trees or shrubs will block windows or interfere with the roof or power lines.
To prepare the planting area dig a hole as deep as the root ball and three times as wide. After removing the soil, mix it with some compost or peat moss. This enriches the soil and loosens the existing dirt so that new roots can spread easily.
To remove the plant from the container, gently brace the base of the plant, tip it sideways and tap the outside of the pot to loosen. Rotate the container and continue to tap, loosening the soil until the plant pulls smoothly from the pot. The container can also be removed by carefully cutting it down the side.

Lycianthes rantonnetii is a species of flowering shrub in the family Solanaceae. Cultivated as ornamental the world over, you might deem it boring and decide to pass it over. But you'd be wrong.

The blue potato bush is one of about 150 species in the genus Lycianthes, which are found mostly in tropical regions of the Americas, with others in the Asia-Pacific region.

The species is named after Barthélémy Victor Rantonnet, a 19th-century French horticulturalist, who thought at first that it should be lumped in with the nightshades (Solanum) - the same genus as potatoes, hence the frumpy common name: Blue Potato Bush

You can train it into a little tree, or let it be shrubby. It's easy to prune an doesn't care much when you do it. The flowers don't have a scent but aside from that it's a great little plant that handles all sorts of abuse cheerfully.

Oh, and boring? More like dangerous. Like most nightshades all parts of this plant are poisonous so keep your kids and dogs out of the flower beds people. A source of psychoactive alkaloids, they will cause a nasty upset stomach and worse.

@ctrl-alt-nwo,
The flower looks beautiful, and the name of the plant also good! But danger is behind it! Really useful article and photography! Actually I didn't know that! It's better we should not grow it at our gardens!

In our country, this plant is called Nightshade Rantonneti. The indisputable advantage of this plant is a bright, long-lasting and abundant flowering. A fast-growing perennial evergreen shrub or small tree up to 3 m tall. The flowers are bright, purple with a yellow center. It blooms very much in summer and in autumn.
It grows very quickly, so you have to pinch and trim it several times a season. But it perfectly tolerates pruning, and thanks to this property, it can be grown as a head tree, and as a lush bush, and even as an ampelous plant. Its young branches are very flexible, easily bend and the plant can be given any desired shape.

It looks beautiful when carefully trimmed and arranged @ctrl-alt-nwo as the purple flowers really is nice to look at.

The potato bush plant is an attractive shrub that grows up to 6 feet tall and wide. It is evergreen in warm climates, and its dense growth habit makes it suitable for use as a hedge or screen. You can also grow it as a tree by removing the lower branches. Pinching the tips.

Potato bush plant is grown outdoors in warm climates. In areas with cool winters, grow it as a potted plant that can be brought indoors when frost threatens. In cool areas, an abundance of small, blue flowers bloom in summer and fall. In frost-free areas, it blooms year round. The flowers are followed by bright red.
depositphotos_27369469-stock-photo-lycianthes-rantonnetii-blue-potato-bush.jpg
Potato bushes grow best if fertilized regularly. You can use a 2-inch layer of compost once or twice a year; a complete, balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring and late summer; or a liquid fertilizer once every month or two. Compost helps the soil manage water efficiently.

Blue potato bush needs a sunny location and a frost-free climate. The plant prefers an organically rich soil that is constantly moist, but well-drained. Achieve the right balance of moisture by watering the plant slowly and deeply when the surface feels dry. Apply a layer of mulch over the soil to slow water evaporation. If the soil drains too quickly, work in some organic material,solanum-2brantonnetii-potato-bush-2b3-for-colorful-shrubs-for-your-garden.jpgJinnah Garden 22 May 14 (52).jpg

Growing to about 6 ft (1.8 m) tall and broad, it is a rounded evergreen shrub with a somewhat lax habit. A profusion of trumpet-shaped, bright blue-purple flowers with a prominent yellow eye appear in summer, followed by red berries. It is widely cultivated and may be hardy in mild or coastal areas. Alternatively it can be grown in a container and brought under cover in winter. It requires a sheltered location in full sun. Though related to food plants like the potato and tomato, all parts of the plant are considered toxic to humans.

Members of the family Solanaceae amaze with their diversity. They are almost all poisonous, I mean leaves, stalks. some species have poisonous berries in any form, in some species the berries are only poisonous in the immature stage. They are probably united by one thing, they are all curly. I had the most interesting experience when I grew sweet potatoes - sweet potatoes, in terms of Moldova. Very interesting plants. Flowers are very similar to these. Even different varieties of potatoes have different flowers, but there is something that unites them, the Colorado potato beetle loves them all))) Wonderful article and photo.

Try some Neem oil, that will fix those beetles.

I learned a lot of interesting things about this plant. The potato tree is a perennial shrub - it means that you will see the plant return year after year to bring color into your garden from summer to autumn. After the fragrant flowers disappear, the plant will produce attractive red berries. Blue potato bush is cultivated all over the world for its beautiful dark purple blue flowers. If you have ever seen its bloom, you will not forget it. Important note: All parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested, including seeds and berries. Pet owners should watch out for their dogs, in particular, so that they do not eat berries or other parts of this bush.

Lycianthes rantonnetii

Lycianthes rantonnetii, the blue potato hedge or Paraguay nightshadeis a types of blossoming plant in the nightshade family Solanaceae, local to South America.Growing to around 6 ft (1.8 m) tall and broad[1], it is an adjusted evergreen bush with a to some degree careless propensity. An abundance of trumpet-formed, splendid blue-purple blossoms with a conspicuous yellow eye show up in summer, trailed by red berries. It is generally developed and might be strong in gentle or beach front territories. On the other hand it tends to be developed in a holder and brought under cover in winter. It requires a shielded area in full sun.Though identified with sustenance plants like the potato and tomato, all parts of the plant are viewed as poisonous to people.

It has been given the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

The species is named for Barthélémy Victor Rantonnet, a nineteenth century French horticulturalist.
