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.
