Deadly Nightshade … will you die for love? Will you die for beauty? Will you die for powers beyond your wildest imagination. That’s the allure of Belladonna, one of the most famous of all the plants in the witch’s garden.
In Italian a beautiful lady; in English a deadly poison. A striking example of the essential identity of the two tongues.” Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary
Officially called Atropa Belladonnna, and also known as Deadly Nightshade, the name Belladonna comes from the Italian word denoting a beautiful woman, possibly related to a Belladonna based tincture used in Venice to dilate their pupils, which was thought to make them more attractive.
Belladonna has such a lovely name, it’s worth remembering that tasting any part of the plant often leads to nightmarish hallucinations, and quite often, death.
