Solanum wallacei, Wallaces Nightshade.
Native to slopes and canyons in chaparral on Santa Catalina and Guadalupe Is.. Flowers are showy. The normal reaction to first observations of customers is whoa, what is it?, a tomato with blue flowers?' (McMinn says the fruits are poisonous, so do not plant where there are young children) A rare plant (On the CNPS list 4 R-E-D Code 1-2-2.) Use in a rock garden or with other perennials in a semi-dry garden. Spectacular mixed with Diplacus, Venegasia, and Encelia species. In our garden the plant dissappeared in the drought of the 1980's. After the -4F Dec. of 1990 we lost all plants of this species in the nursery. Then in 1995 the original plant reappeared as if nothing had happened. Natives are amazing!
