Husband Ric brought these home they came from a co-workers garden. The co-worker called them moon flowers. (They are not what I think of as Moon flowers, the large white morning glory type) They look like Datura, to me. But althought very similar to my double yellow the leaves are slighty different. The two blooms I have been watching all day just opened as the sun went down. I also beleive that these probably reseed themselves here in Zone 6. I'm pretty sure he doesn't replant them every year.

I have the same thing and am told it is Datura. They reseed themselves and have become invasive to me and my husband hates the thorny seedpods.

Yes, simple Datura. Lovely nightime flowers, thorny round seedpods & yes, it can become very invasive if not watched carefully.

It's Datura inoxia

Here is a link to plantfiles which will tell you all about it.

To keep it under control, always cut off the spent bloom at the stem so it can't make seeds, you must cut below the ovum. If you want seeds for next year, leave 1 or 2 on.
