Datura, Torna Loco (D. ceratocaula), potted plant, organic


Family:  Nightshade (Solanacea)

(Torna Loco, Atlinan) Fleshy, water-loving annual, native to Mexico.  “Crazy twisted datura.”  Source of toxic alkaloids, never ingest any part of this plant!  Bears non-thorny pods that dangle like eggs from a thick, glabrous and fleshy stem that tends to repine and is curved like an animal’s horn (etymology of ceratocaula). The flowers emit the fragrance of wintergreen (methyl salicylate), that wafts enticingly across the garden in evening and morning.  The flowers are showy and prolific.  I found these to be very growable despite the fact that my garden is not very wet.   These plants will sprangle and flower much to the delight of all nature.

Potted plant, certified organically grown
