If i had read this article about 6 years ago, I might have kept my jimson weed.
Mine was yellow! Grew right smack dab in the middle of my yard. I've a notion to allow weeds to grow, now and again because I think they are beautiful, LOL, that one was beautiful, however my kids were too little so once I found out it was toxic, I yanked it. Wasn't too worried about my kids, but you know had the entire neighborhood of children always running around. But the whole reason I allowed it to grow, Was because it reminded me of a morning glory, only it bloomed early evening in to morning.
hehe, your story reminded me of an otherwise forgotten wildflower. LOL, I only have one picture of it too, needed it to find out what it was.
well, back too comment on another great article.
What a nice way to to teach young Ethan of his great great Aunt Bette and recall another memory.
It was probably a bird dropped or windblown seed from a domestic brugmansia. Brugs have many colors of blooms. The blooms are very large and hang down as if from heaven so they are often called Angel's Trumpets. Daturas have been hybirdized too. Their blooms point upward toward heaven and are called Devil's flowers. You can go to the forums for each of these plants and find many who raise them and will probably be able to send you some seeds.
