Agree on datura inoxia...
Disagree on the "jimson weed" moniker .. Jimson weed usually refers to D. stromonium

Datura inoxia is a great plant for the moon garden....

Dave already posted the hawk moth shots... really fun when those manducca sexta (tomato moths) get going...

I agree on the datura and the moths. They are huge.

We had a long discussion over at walter reeves site on the different daturas... I thought this was wrightii too... until I did a bit of research...

The Ladybird Johnson link suggests that d. wrightii and d. inoxia are synonymous... which differs from other source material.

So what is it that you see in this picture that distinguishes this as inoxia and not wrightii?

The Ladybird Johnson site may be referring to Datura inoxia subsp. quinquecuspida, an obsolete subspecies of D. inoxia (now more properly spelled D. Innoxia) that has been reclassified as a synonym for D. wrightii.
