Silver-leaved Nightshade or Silverleaf nightshade
It is a perennial 10 cm to 1 m in height. The stems are covered with short spines, ranging from very few on some plants to very dense on others. Leaves and stems are covered with downy hairs that lie against and hide the surface, giving a silvery or grayish appearance.The leaves are up to 15 cm long and 0.5 to 2.5 cm wide, with shallowly waved edges.The flowers, appearing from April to August, have five petals united to form a star, ranging from blue to pale lavender or occasionally white; five yellow stamens and a pistil form a projecting center. The plant produces glossy yellow, orange, or red berries that last all winter and may turn brown as they dry.

amazing! great colours! uff... I would love to see one of this.
I still don´t understand if the flower is shown full open; seems a little bit out of focus on the petals at the back.
anyway, great shot of this strange flower! compliments
günaydın Sami Bey,
fotoğraflarınıza bakarken gördüm bu güzeli. Patlıcangiller veya Tütüngiller ailesinin genel çiçek yapısı kolayca görülse de enfes bir güzellik. morumsu ve sarı rengin harika bir ikilisi. ustalıkla pozlanmış nefis bir kare. keskin detayları ve ışık kullanımı aynı şekilde ve mükemmel. canlı renkler ve sade fona şık bir çerçeve eşlik ediyor.
elinize sağlık. selamlar.
