Description

Solanum x sambucinum is a nothospecies (a naturally occurring hybrid) from Michoacan, Mexico. Thought to be a cross of S. cardiophyllum and S. pinnatisectum. Plants roughly one to two feet tall. White flowers. Round berries.

Jarvis (2008) predicts that this species will lose 95% of its present range by 2055 due to climate change, most likely entailing a critical loss of genetic diversity.
