Amatillo plants are worth removing from landscapes


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
Twice last week some office
visitors brought in samples from
an unknown plant for our Master
Gardeners to identify. Besides
having distinctive yellow berries,
it had a curious arrangement of
having two unequal sized leaves
that grew from, each bud.
According to UF Extension Weed
Specialist Dr. Ken Langeland,
Twin-leaved Solanum is one of
the new "featured fiends" that
will be included in his new sec-
ond book of Florida's invasive
plants.
This plant is cropping up in
more and more Florida Yards all
over the southern part of the
peninsula, and is worth remov-
ing from your landscape as soon
as it is noticed. If it is allowed to
drop its berries, expect to be
picking the seedlings from
around your landscape shrubs
and trees for years to come.
While it is not as invasive as
the infamous Brazilian Pepper
tree, it has the potential to invade
natural areas as well as become
a persistent landscape weed.
The UF/IFAS Task Force on inva-
sive species cautions its use as
an ornamental because of its
ability to spread, and the. Florida
Exotic Plant Pest Council has
added it to its Group II list -
those plants that have the ability
to spread into natural areas if
conditions are favorable.
Twin-leaved Solanum or Two-
leaved Solanum (Solanum
diphyllum) is a native of Mexico
and Central America. Another
name sometimes given to this
plant is Amatillo, which is the
name of places in El Salvador,
Guatemala and Honduras.
(There is also a town of Amatillo
in Texas, where this weed has
also escaped cultivation.)


.., UNIVERSITY OF
FLORIDA

IFAS EXTENSION
Leaves of this plant are gener-
ally a deep green color and
smooth, and can measure 1 to 3
inches long. The pairs of leaves
grow with one big and one small
leaf. The plant itself forms an
upright woody stem that can
grow up to 6 feet in height, but
they more typically top out at
three to four feet.
During warmer months it will
produce clusters of small white
five-petaled flowers that give rise
to the round yellow berries. The
fruit can be one-half inch in
diameter, and are filled with
many black seeds. They remind
me of small cherry tomatoes
with hardened skin. No doubt
that many others see this as well,
as they are very closely related to
tomatoes, peppers, and other
members of the nightshade fam-
ily.
According to Dr. Langeland,
the plants may freeze back in
winter but will re-sprout from
their roots. Research shows that
75 to 85 percent of the seed will
sprout, and the seed can stay
alive even when buried an inch
in the soil for up to two years.
Birds and bats will also help
spread this plant by eating the
fruit and depositing them else-
where.
Last year I was walking
through the Mexico pavilion at
EPCOT, in the Disney property,
and saw this upright woody
bush growing in the landscape
between the tropical Hibiscus
and Philodendrons. I also saw
one growing next to a neigh-
bor's bougainvillea vine, and the
resulting fruit easily spread many

Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973. Com-
ments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
COP CARS: Well what else do you all want to complain about! Listen
if any county sheriff, city policeman or woman, or county employees
want to drop off their children at school on their way to or from work
should not be a problem. Having our police force in plain view at our
schools can only be a positive re-enforcement for our community. We
have open school campuses at some of our schools and I like the idea of
knowing that the sight of police vehicles may make anyone stop to think
about committing a crime against our schools or children. Obviously it
made you notice the officers were at a school for you to complain. I work
at a school and it is amazing how many parents slow down, make sure
their kids are in their seat belts, and become law biding citizens when
that police car is in view. Cut our men and women of law enforcement
some slack will you. There is way to many other things in our community
that need attention.

COUNTY VEHICLES: Regarding city and county vehicles, here is my
opinion. Marked police and deputy vehicles should be driven around as
much as possible. Anyone assigned one should be encouraged to drive it
as much as possible as long as they stay in the city or county limits. Why?
Because it is visual deterrent to crime. Think about it. When there is a cop
car behind you, what do you do? Most people slow down, start watching,
the traffic more carefully, signal before turning, etc. When a criminal sees a
cop car coming down the street, they go the other way. The more those
marked units are driving around this community, the better. I have no prob-
lem if they are taking kids to school or to a ball game. The point is the fact
the marked cars are out there being seen helps stop crime. Since cops are
on call at all times, they have to take the vehicles home with them at night.
It is silly for them to drive the family car to school, drop off the kids, drive
back home and get the police car to go on to work. As for the other city and
county vehicles, unless the person is on-call 24 hours a day, those should
be left parked at the city or county office at.night and only used during work
hours. That is just my opinion. Thankyou.
GETA LIFE: I want to respond to the whiners who have nothing better
to do than complain because the junk man, who has been there forever,
still has junk; and those who are upset because police are parents too
and drop off their kids at school before work. You people need to mind
your own business and get a life. The junk man is not hurting you. If you
don't like what his place looks like, don't look at it. No one makes you
shop there. And as for the cops dropping off their kids at school, did it
ever occur toyou that might be the only time those kids get to talk to their
dad, because he works crazy hours protecting your sorry selves? I can't
believe how petty some people can be, complaining about things that do
not hurt anyone. Get over it and concentrate your efforts on helping
someone instead.
