I made an amazing find--- Growing in a wash, which is a weather-disturbed area here in the CA desert, I found a mature, flowering Jimson Weed (datura wrightii) with several seed pods. This is the "Sacred Datura" of the local Native Americans.It is rare, when I was young we used to find it, but I have not seen one thriving like this in 30 years.(Urbanization has destroyed it's habitat) It is growing with NO water source,on annual desert rainfall ONLY, and has about 20 fabulous white flowers on the bush, which is about 4 feet across. I have a few seeds already wild-harvested from this plant, and there will be more, as it has several green seed pods.
I plan on taking pictures next week, and will post them. If you are interested in exotic desert plants, contact me. K.
