Anisodus (Asian Belladonna) & Atropanthe (Chinese Belladonna)

Asian Belladonnas and Chinese Belladonnas are relatives of the European Belladonnas (Atropa spec.), yet rarely cultivated outside their countries of origin. As Atropa they grow from a perennial rootstock and have annual racemes with plain green leaves and axillary, nodding greenish-yellow to reddish-purple bellflowers followed by greenish berries in an inflated calyx. For any rich, well drained soil in a sunny to partially shaded spot.
Sow flat from autumn to late spring in any well drained, yet humus rich soil. Seeds from both Anisoda and Atropanthe will require a prolonged cooling period prior germination. Keep sowing pots in a protected spot outside in winter. Transplant rhizome in autumn after leaves have withered.
Note: All parts are poisonous if ingested !
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
