Eastern Black Nightshade

Eastern Black Nightshade, originally uploaded by Ontario Wanderer.

Since the microscope is out and hooked up, I thought I should look at a few more flowers. This one is Solanum ptychanthum and will have black berries. That's why the "black" nightshade got its name in spite of the white and yellow flowers. The actual size of the flower is less than 1 cm ( 4 in).
