    Datura, LocoWeed sometimes also known as Moon Flower

    It is a Sacred Datura plant. It was called that because Native Americans used it to hallucinate for religious reasons. Be careful, it is poisonous. It is also called Jimson Weed. Yes, some people call it Moonflower, however, that name is also used for a Morning glory relative with white blooms.

    The Moonflower I'm familiar with that is related to morning glories blooms in the evening or in the late afternoon. You can watch the huge blooms (4 or so inches in diameter) unfurl as daylight fades. This looks more like what I know as Jimson Weed or Angel's Trumpet. Pretty but poisonous.

    Could be bindweed, but only if it is a wandering vine that keeps winding around the flowers & leaves. Difficult to eradicate.

      Yep, it’s bindweed. Very invasive & will choke off other vegetation. Winds around other plants & shrubs like wild grapevines will do.

    Morning glory I think

    Hi. Blooming during the day it's Morning Glory. If it starts to bloom at twilight it is Moonflower.

    Look at Mexican Primrose.

    Looks like a Lilly plant to me, I used to have 1 that a neighbor gave us many years ago it came back every year when we planted the seeds on May 1st until recently. The neighbor used to call it White Bell Flower but I have also seen it in Nursery garden catalogs in other colors. A neighbor near me now has 1 of the plants in white also and hers comes up every year too. I love it and whish it would come up for me again too I keep trying and planting the seeds I did have it 1 year but I just have had no luck in getting it to grown again since then.
