Climbing Nightshade Wildflowers Are Blooming On Cape Cod.

The Climbing Nightshade wildflowers are blooming all along the trails on Cape Cod. I saw these at Fort Hill, along many of the trails.

Climbing Nightshade wildflowers are a climbing vine with 1/2″ violet flowers swept back from a yellow central “beak” in loose clusters. It forms egg-shaped shiny green berries which turn to bright red in late summer.

Such a pretty little wildflower but beware:  The berries are poisonous!

  1. An article says the berries are poisonous to humans and animals but not to birds! Tricky plant – pretty and dangerous.
