Native Datura Wrightii Pics

Central_Cali369(Sunset Z9, Fresno, CA)June 11, 2008

Here's a couple of pics of a native Datura Wrightii blooming from today. It came up last year and bloomed all summer and fall, but i hacked it back, and here it is today. Heres the native Datura Wrightii blooming, it came up last year and i hacked it back in the fall, then here it is now. I missed the first bloom, but these are just as nice. The following are some Mirabilis Jalapa, Bougainvillea Buttiana, and a Tillisandia Juncea that i recently mounted on the tree fern.

How pretty and how interesting. In searching I see that the USDA site says it is native to the lower 48 states, including Indiana. I don't find it in my Indiana Wild Flower Field Guide. I do however find Datura inoxia, and Datura stramonium, but both those are listed as 'introduced' and are non native.

Hey sue, apparently, Datura Wrightii is a different species that is native to northern Mexico and the Southwestern states, sometimes occuring as far north as Utah. I have seen this same species in Sasabe, Sonora, Mexico as well as throughout Arizona and California. I researched Datura Inoxia and the flower is apparently a bit longer than wrightii.
