The White Henbane (Hyoscyamus albus) is a medium sized annual plant. It was found
growing along a narrow street at the margins. A related species (H. niger) is also
reported to grow in the Maltese Islands and may be distinguished by the dark
reticulations on the flowers. Like other members of the Solanaceae this plant has toxic
alkaloids in all parts of the plant and is considered poisonous.
