Eggplant is fussy about its growing conditions, and many insects wreak havoc with it. Flea beetles riddle leaves with holes, tomato hornworms can defoliate a plant overnight and mites also attack plants. Flowers drop without forming fruit if temps drop below 60 F or soar over 75 F. Eggplant is easiest to grow in warmer zones.

Glamorous accessories, such as mirrored tabletops, a black velvet Lucite bench, black lampshades and a zebra area rug punctuate and anchor the bold color combinations.
