We’re closing out the Introduced Plant Month before moving back into next year’s native plants with Jimsonweed. This is an appropriate choice, because there is some disagreement as to whether Jimsonweed should be considered a native plant, or an introduced species. For more photos and information go to the Datura stramonium detail page.
Jimsonweed, an introduced species, has been added to the USWildflowers database (09/25/2011.) Scientific name is Datura stramonium. It is also known by the common names Jamestown Weed, Mad Apple, Moon Flower, Stinkwort, Thorn Apple, and Devil’s Trumpet. Photo below was taken in the Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Management Area in Walker County, GA on Sep 24, 2011. Go to the Jimsonweed detail page for more photos and information.
