A huge thank you for these great pictures to Mario with Falcusan Photography

Nicandra is a coarse, erect annual that is native to Peru. It belongs to the nightshade family and can become quite invasive. In early summer, the plants are adorned with 1½ inch solitary violet bell-shaped flowers with white centers; the delicate blossom, similar to morning glory, are very short lived but the seedpods are a favorite in arrangements – some are green, some are black and green.
