Sacred Datura

Sacred Datura is the politically correct name for this plant. It is commonly called Jimson weed (which we call jipsom weed) and Loco weed. It is highly toxic and a few people and a few cows die now and again from ingesting too much of the plant. It is one of the most prominently showy flowers in the desert that is not a cactus.
