HABITAT: An annual or biennial herb, native to the Mediterranean region and temperate Asia, occurring in Western Himalayas from Kashmir to Kumaon.
BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION: Hyoscyamus niger, an annual or biennial herb growing up to 1.5 m tall, is thought to have been native originally to a broad region of Eurasia. It is naturalized in many regions globally and is a noxious weed in much of North America. H. niger is cultivated as a medicinal plant in many countries, and risk of introduction is likely to be associated with commercial seed or as a seed contaminant. Once established, H. niger is capable of producing thousands of highly viable seeds per plant. However, its competitive ability appears to be limited to disturbed and cultivated areas. It has oval leaves, and the color of its flowers varies from yellow to dull green with purple veins. The fruit contains 200 seeds.
