Quartz Hill - Los Angeles County
California Wildflowers
Datura, the scientific label, commonly known as jimson weed in the southwest, sports a beautifully enticing flower. The seeds contain alkaloids which are highly toxic to humans and livestock. Humans usually don't mess with these plants, but domestic animals don't have the knowledge not to munch on these "loco weeds." The attractive blossoms appear from June to September.
