The name means "lovely lady" because taken internally or applied externally it causes the pupils of the eyes to dilate. An important plant in modern medicine especially as a muscle relaxant but NOT suitable for self-medication. Likes sweet rich soil but is fairly adaptable. Tubular purple flowers and shiny black berries can be attractive to children - please exercise caution.
