Plant of the Week 12/21/2018

December 22, 2018

Jimsonweed (Sacred Datura; Datura wrightii) - Zone 5-8

 

Jimsonweed is a unique plant since the flowers open in the evening and close in the mornings (although you may find a few open flowers during the day). Captivating large white (with a hint of purple) trumpet-shaped flowers can reach up to 8"!

 

Tolerant of poor soils with lower water needs, this plant can often be seen growing wild throughout Santa Fe and surrounding areas. On average Jimsonweed grows to 3-4' tall and wide. Be aware, all parts of this plant contain poisonous alkaloids that can result in death if ingested.
