Moon Lily is not a lily at all but a member of the Solanaceae family. It is botanically Datura stramonium and is commonly called Jimson-weed; thornapple; Sacred Datura; Jamestown weed; and moon lily, probably because it blooms at night. It is native to the southwestern desert, although it may grow as an annual in your gardening region. You may be able to find seeds online.
