Garden Variety IS the Spice of Life!
Caucasican Belladonna is native to the Northern Caucasus and touts many of the same physical and historic folk uses as common belladonna. The main difference between Caucasican Belladonna and common belladonna is that the plant is over all more compact, has purple tinged stems and has slightly better cold tolerance.
Belladonna is an herb with a rich history that is native to central Europe and has been used during the times of the Druids/ Celts for ritual purposes. Due to the toxic nature of this plant, it's use was at times, sinister, as it could also be used as a covert method of poisoning. During early rudimentary medical procedures, belladonna was considered a medicinal plant and was used for sedation. In modern times, it is still utilized as a natural remedy to treat migraine headaches (Hyland's Homeopathic) and the active chemical hyoscine is a constituent of several modern day medications.
