New Orleans Datura


The datura is one of my favorite plants. The huge white flowers open at night and have a wonderful fragrance. The bushes grow very tall, especially in warm climates. I painted this picture for a client who saw datura growing way over her head on a trip to New Orleans.

I didn't know it but Datura belongs to the classic "witches' weeds," along with deadly nightshade, henbane, and mandrake. Most parts of the plants contain toxic hallucinogens and that's the nicest point about it.
