Solanum douglasii

Wildflowers Dicots Eudicots Asterids Solanales Solanaceae Solanum

White nightshade. Frequently found in front-country creekbeds, though I have seen it in drier locations, though never in the back-country. It blooms year round.

In the spring this is less common than the purple nightshade

Small, tomato-like fruit appeared in May, by November most plants are covered with small black berries.

This may prove to be a subspecies of Solanum nigrum (var. douglasii).
