Scopolia is a genus close to Belladonna (Atropa spp.) and the Asian genus Atropanthe, yet as seeds is rarely available, most species are hardly known in cultivation. As Atropa and Atropanthe they grow from a perennial, long-lived rootstock. Several species make very tall annual racemes with plain green leaves and ornamental, axillary, horizontally hold to pendulous, greenish-yellow, reddish-green to violet bellflowers followed by yellowish-green berries in an inflated calyx. For any rich, well drained soil in a sunny to partially shaded spot. All species are very nice border plants.
Sow flat from autumn to late spring in any well drained, humus rich soil. Transplant rhizome in autumn after leaves have withered.
