Interesting member of the Solanaceae which we collected in Bita Hai in Yunnan waaaay back in 1997. Totally dormant in winter, this bursts forth in late spring and rapidly makes a multi-stemmed plant up to 5' high with curious nearly waxy 1.5" pale greenish flowers like overturned spittoons. Poisonous rhizomes are used medicinally. Thanks to Cody Hinchliff for keying.
