The old illustration of Deadly Nightshade, Atropa belladonna, from 1887, paints a picture of the plant's captivating but potentially dangerous beauty. Depicted with lush foliage and delicate purple flowers, this herb has historically been used to treat various ailments, including headaches, migraines, and nerve-related pain. Despite its possible benefits, the plant certainly deserves its literal and figurative warning signs; due to its potent toxins, it is commonly known as a poison when not properly dosed. Given its success as an antidote in many regions of the world for centuries, however, it may be worth hopping back down the garden path to take a closer look at the medicinal potential of this infamous flower today.
Poisonous or not, whatever, it's a beautiful botanical poster to have on the wall in the kitchen or any other important place in the home.
