DarWhile Howard Norton shows the Stephens a black Peruvian rose, Samantha tells Darrin she feels ill, and has lost her witchcraft. The doctor tells Samantha that her health is perfect. Gladys sees the doctor's car and brings some chicken soup. When square green spots appear on Samantha's face, Abner is sure the chicken soup is responsible. Aunt Clara arrives and lists the ingredients for a remedy. Darrin buys all the ingredients (except an ostrich feather) from Mr. Trigby, who caters to witches. Trying to take the ostrich feather from a woman's hat, Darrin is arrested but later released. Aunt Clara, after using witchcraft to produce an ostrich, tells Darrin she still needs four petals from a black Peruvian rose. Darrin is arrested when he tries to steal the petals from Mr. Norton's precious bloom. Finally, Aunt Clara concocts the remedy and cures Samantha. Later, Mr. Norton is astonished when he sees a window box filled with black Peruvian rose Samantha has produced by twitching her nose.

Guest cast: Philip Coolidge as Trigby, Lauren Gilbert as Norton, Maudie Prickett as the woman on the street, Larry Mann as the police sergeant, Ray Hastings as the first policeman.
