      Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Friday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 5-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $85 per hour. Go this site and start your work.. Good luck... http://www.Jobzon3.com

    These are very beautiful flowers with an amazing scent. Would love to have a few seed pods from this bush. They form after the flower dies. The pods grow til they burst, therefore regrowing more of the plant. This plant will get very large .

    Angel's trumpet and jimson weed are the same plant. The plants are harmless as long as you don't eat them.

    You need to be careful of these if they are Angles Trumpets as they are poisonous.

    Theyre also known as Datura, if you don't have pets or small children they're ok, otherwise they are quite toxic

    My mom told me it was the "devils plant" because thr white flowers smell nice, and are pretty at first. Beware the plant will take over, vine around and destroys all your other plants. I had one plant to invade my yard, last year and I'm still trying to destroy it. It vine up everything and the roots spread underground. Good luck getting rid of it.

    It is datura, also known as devil's trumpets, Jamestown weed, thorn apple, downy thornapple, angel’s trumpet, mad apple, stinkwort, moonflowers, jimsonweed, devil's weed, hell's bells, and many more. It is highly toxic to animals and people.

    Although the flowers of jimsonweeds can be very beautiful, this four-foot tall weed packs with it a poisonous payload in the form of a spine-covered seedpod. Once this walnut-sized pod breaks open, control of jimsonweed becomes much more difficult.

    Jimsonweed control can be challenging, since seeds from past seasons can be brought to the surface while tilling. These seeds remain viable for up to a century, and with each pod producing up to 800 seeds, the sheer number of potential jimsonweeds is staggering. Fortunately, these plants are summer annuals and do not reproduce from root sections.

    When attempting to control jimsonweed in the lawn, regular mowing is often all that’s necessary. Once you’ve had jimsonweed on your property, it may take many seasons to kill off all the seeds, but keeping them mowed so short that they can’t produce new seeds will help you wear the stand out.

    Jimsonweed in the garden may need to be pulled by hand (wear gloves), or sprayed with an herbicide, like glyphosate, due to the alkaloids it releases from its roots – these compounds are very dangerous to many other plants. Pre-emergence herbicides can be applied to your garden spot before planting time if jimsonweed is a yearly problem.

    Seedlings are readily killed by tillage. However, older plants may regenerate from lower nodes that are clipped or trampled.
    Or, hoe before weeds exceed 1/4 inch in height. Once jimsonweed is established it is difficult to control.

    Jimsonweed - Jamestown Story

    Captain John Smith, founder of Jamestown
    In 1676, British soldiers were sent to stop the Rebellion of Bacon. Jamestown weed (Jimsonweed) was boiled for inclusion in a salad, which the soldiers readily ate. The hallucinogenic properties of jimsonweed took affect.
    As told by Robert Beverly in The History and Present State of Virginia (1705): The soldiers presented "a very pleasant comedy, for they turned natural fools upon it for several days: one would blow up a feather in the air; another would dart straws at it with much fury; and another, stark naked, was sitting up in a corner like a monkey, grinning and making mows at them; a fourth would fondly kiss and paw his companions, and sneer in their faces with a countenance more antic than any in a Dutch droll.
    "In this frantic condition they were confined, lest they should, in their folly, destroy themselves - though it was observed that all their actions were full of innocence and good nature. Indeed they were not very cleanly; for they would have wallowed in their own excrements, if they had not been prevented. A thousand such simple tricks they played, and after 11 days returned themselves again, not remembering anything that had passed."

    They are Datura plants. I believe also called jimsonweed. They are considered to be poisonous, and come in yellow and pink as well.

    And for heaven sake don't burn them! The smoke is poisonous, the least effect is like LSD.
