Deadly Nightshade (Solanum)

(592) These plants are found in waste areas and hay fields. The berries are very poisonous and will produce an acute haemorrhagic gastro-enteritis with considerable salivation, trembling, paralysis, leading to coma and finally death. Poisoning in pigs is rare. Treatment requires the use of pilocarpine. Consult your veterinarian.
