I don't grow Scopolia carniolica because of the hallucinogenic and memory-inhibiting effects of its oil. OK, maybe there is some allure in knowing of the plant's potential as a knock-out drug. And it's a member of the nightshade family, one that is not generally recognized for its horticultural assets. And it does produce nodding flowers very early in the season (i.e., now). So I suppose I could say the plant is paying its rent -- but just barely.
