Mickey Mouse Plant


Mickey Mouse Plant or Solanum Mammosum

A fun houseplant to collect, Mickey Mouse plant provides almost all seasons' interest. Gorgeous bright yellow blossoms, that then has green seeds that ripen to a shiny black groupings over sepals that turn bright red giving this plant its common name! This ornamental shrub invades bushlands and forms dense thickets which are difficult to remove. It has yellow flowers and later black seeds with red sepals still attached and sometimes mistaken for flower. This is one of those weeds that doesn't respond very well to control with glyphosate. A basal bark application of fluroxypyr and diesel is generally the most effective control technique for this weed.
