Jimsonweed Or Discarded Kleenex?

Photo: Diane Edwardson, May 3, 2009. Native Jimsonweed (Datura wrightii) just started blooming on the Red Car Property Meadow. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

The first time I saw Jimsonweed in bloom, I thought someone had discarded their Kleenex and it was stuck on a plant. Henceforth, it became known in our household as the Kleenex flower.
