These grow wild in my yard, they are so beautiful and they close up somewhat in the day and then open up at night. They last longer than a day when in water and grow very long!

Once you have these you cannot get rid of them. They come up everywhere. I pull and pull every year and cannot get rid of them. So beware before you plant, they are very invasive. I didn't plant mine, they came from seed from my neighbors plants.

I thought these were deadly nightshade. I do think they are pretty, but berries are extremely toxic.


I also pull them and pull them and they are invasive. A few is okay and I warn my kids the berries are bad, but they are older.
