Horse-nettle is a nasty, prickly plant in the nightshade family, but it gets its turn in the sun in my Weed Vase series. Most of the Horse-nettle I see is eaten into lace by whatever insect loves it, but when I find a fresh, un-munched specimen, I like to use it on my pots. I love the odd shape of horse-nettle leaves, each with its own pricker at each leaf-point, and the gangly stem- and berry-lines. It produces a beautiful little flower, but is more worthy ON a vase than IN one. 10.25” tall by 7.5” diameter. Try Hydrangeas and Japanese Maple branches.
