Detailed Description and Benefits

How to Recognize Datura Stramony Among Other Datura Species?

The Datura Stramone, with its distinctive characteristics, is easily distinguished from other members of its family. Unlike Datura Inoxia, which is often confused with Stramony due to their similar trumpet-shaped flowers, Stramony has generally more upright flowers and a more erect habit. In addition, the leaves of Datura Stramone are rougher and its seed capsules are covered with shorter, denser spines than those of Datura Inoxia, which are rather soft to the touch.

Other Datura species include:

  • Datura Metel : Recognizable by its double or triple flowers, often purple or white in color. This species is very appreciated for its ornamental appearance.
  • Datura Wrightii : It is distinguished by its large white flowers and its more open growth habit. It is often found in the deserts of North America.
  • Datura Ferox : Rarer, this species is known for its large leaves and small flowers. It is often associated with medicinal properties in certain cultures.

Each Datura species has its own unique characteristics, although all share certain medicinal and toxic properties. It is crucial to be able to identify them correctly, not alone

Uses of Datura Stramone
