White/ Russian Henbane -Seeds

White/ Russian Henbane -Seeds Image

On first examination, there seems little difference between the white and the Black Henbane, apart from the bracts and the flower colour which has more hue.
As it is more widespread in Europe, it is more than likely the official Henbane of most herbals and we have found that medicinally, they are almost identical.
Strikes well during the cooler months but even the mature plants do not to very well in the direct heat of summer.
Best planted where some shade during the heat of the day is provided and it does like to have it's feet damp.
