My Jimsonweed Is Back

These are my photos of the Jimsonweed growing in a pot that had Marigolds. It planted itself again this year.  They call it a weed because it has a strange odor. I think the plant is beautiful.

Here you can see one of the Marigolds underneath the plant.

    1. Well Debra it grew on its own without my planting it but the flowers are so beautiful that I decided to watch it grow. It also has these spiked "apples" that stick you if you touch them! I'm NOT using it to get high.

    1. Thank you Jan but I can't take credit for this one. It just likes to grow in that pot.

  3. It is wildly successful in that pot. As long as you don't ingest it you can enjoy its beauty.

  4. Thank your for both the botany and history lesson. Had not realized the British soldiers spent 11 days high. No wonder they lost the war.
