Hyoscyamus (Henbane) & Physochlaina

Henbane, Insane Root, or Hog’s-Bean is a small genus with fast growing annuals or biennials native of semi-arid or coastal areas from Central Europe, and the Mediterranean extending eastwards to Asia. They make short, few branching stems with greyish-green to fresh-green, hairy leaves and terminal racemes with white, lemon yellow to intense yellow flowers, usually with a purple to almost black throat. Plants have been used in medicine, all parts are strongly poisenous if ingested.
Physochlaina is a small genus of herbaceous perennials native in mountainous regions in eastern Asia. They make annual stems from a perennial rootstock, crowned by several showy lilac tubular flowers in late spring to early summer. They are easily grown in any humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny to partially shaded spot. Physochlaina will go dormant in summer and regrow in following spring.
Sow flat on any rich, yet well drained, sandy soil in mid spring. Keep pots in full and substrate always slightly moist until seedlings appear. Place pots in a sunny spot and keep the soil always slightly moist. Transplant to the garden from end of spring till early summer as soon as plants are strong enough.
