Downy Thorn Apple
The Downy Thorn Apple is a bushy plant growing up to 2 metres high with grey-velvety leaves that turn dark green and less velvety with age. The leaves have prominent veins and an unpleasant smell. Solitary white, funnel-shaped flowers appear from July to October, followed by brown hardened fruit capsules densely covered with slender spines up to 10mm long. The seeds are toxic to livestock and humans.
