Red Car Canyon: Not A Park, It Just Looks Like One

Photo: Diane Edwardson, May 31, 2014.  Jimsonweed (Datura wrightii) attracts hawk moths.  This is the area where the Tarantula Hawk was seen searching the ground.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Many plants are toxic to humans & animals.  California Poison Control has a list online.  Many species of Datura are toxic. 

We often get email suggesting some plants are edible. If you are eating your way through the Red Car Property, we DO NOT recommend you eat any plant you find in the Red Car Property neighborhood without first doing your own research. See
