Details

Datura stramonium produces trumpet-shaped blooms that face upward. This variety produces white flowers with purple throats that bloom all summer long.

This plant is also known as Jimsonweed because in Jamestown in 1676, it poisoned soldiers who made the fresh leaves into a soup. It is also known as Devil’s Trumpet and Thorn-apple.

In early times, Datura was considered an aid to the incantation of witches, and during the time of the witch and wizard mania in England, it was unlucky for anyone to grow it in their garden.

Caution: All parts of Datura plants are quite poisonous, especially the seeds.

We cannot sell Datura seeds to those living in Connecticut, Kansas, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey, Oklahoma or Tennessee.
