Enchanter's Nightshade

Circaea lutetiana

1/2

Enchanters nightshade is a native plant to the UK that appears delicate and weak but can be a troublesome weed if it gets established in the garden. What makes it so invasive are the fine spreading rhizomes that creep through the garden and allow it to cover large areas. It thrives on moist and rich soil and can takeover woodland easily.
