Solanaceae (Aureliana Fasciculata)

Although we had snow on Friday the 17th, some plants are already beginning to show flowers. This is one more native. Identified as the solanaceous type, Aureliana Fasciculata. The flowers are small, around 5mm, white and with a soft scent that resembles lemon.

Pretty flowers a bonus to have what sounds like a beautiful scent.

Thank you Thrupennybit. I hope the bees will like it.

I am sure they will Aleyna with all that scent it's bound to attract them.

Snow?! I can't believe you would have snow in your hot subtropical climate. You're located at a lower latitude than San Diego. WOW!

The temperatures are supposed to go below zero ºC tonight, maybe far to -3ºC. No snow I guess. :))

I'm sure elevation plays it's role in the early onset of cold weather, Am I right Aleyna? Are you "tropical" or in the "Temperate" zone. high south latitude and high elevation?

27 Aug, 2018


Yes, we are in the temperate zone of the south. Latitude south 29º 26 '52 "and elevation of 907m in relation to sea level. For comparison, London is 25m and San Diego 31m high relative to the sea.

In the Northern Hemisphere we have late winter snow in March, in fact that's when we get most of our snow...Is this the same situation? We're close to the 45th parallel NH. long. -77. Elev. 815 ft. above sea level. perhaps similar to your position in the SH.
Other parts of the SH are having very strange winters this year.. Australia and NZ most notably.
