found these the other day but I have no idea what they are. They are light blue on the tips and they smell heavenly. Would you have any clue as to what they are?

Datura, also known as Jimson Weed. Pretty but can be poisonous to grazing animals.

Google and look at the numerous varieties of Datura. Some have leaves that look just like your pictures. Two are Datura Metel Alba and Datura innoxia.

We will have to agree to disagree. I am familiar with Deadly Night Shade and when I google it I didn't see anything that looked like your pictures. Shrug! Shrug!

I never said you were wrong. I was saying thank you because I wouldn't have figured out what it was without starting somewhere.

I get that, but pictures can be misidentified, I looked on a plant identification website and in the description it said that jimson weed has oak type leaves. These are not oak type leaves. I appreciate your help again thank you.

That's the problem with using common names like Jimson Weed. It is applied to several species of datura. Datura is the genus, here is our database listing of several.

Here is one Paul mentioned in our database, notice the long list of common names. It's the genus and species names that distinguish them from each other.

Jimson Weed (Datura innoxia)

You know, If a bunch of us click 'thumbs up' on angel's trumpet, we can get the name to change... and the site will stop calling it Jimpson weed...

Jimpson weed is more commonly datura stramonium.



And... wouldn't you know... there's a picture of datura inoxia misplaced on the datura stramonium link!

Click on 'Devil's Trumpet' as the brugmansia is more commonly known as Angel's Trumpet.

Concur. Among us uneducated folks. Devil's trumpet points UP. Angels Trumpet points DOWN. That is the way we differentiate.

The native Southwestern Thorn Apple (Datura wrightii) is another possibility.

It looks like my moonflower. See this site for more info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.c...
It can be a vine as the article says, I haven't put a trellis up yet.

Datura inoxia.
Large white trumpet flowers and spiny seed pods would indicate genus, red stem and non jagged leaves indicate species.

stramonium is generally smaller and has jagged leaves.

Angels trumpet is the related genus Brugmansia, main difference is the flowers hang downward and are often tinted in shades or red and yellow as opposed to plain white and purple

'Moonflower' is another common name that creates confusion. Some folks use it to name Datura (like in this post). Datura isn't a vine and doesn't climb. Moonflower (Ipomoea alba) (morning glory) is the one that vines/climbs.
