Datura metel

Datura metel 'Blackcurrant Swirl'. Picture taken July 21, 2009.

A recurrent subject of Georgia O'Keeffe's paintings was Datura, these paintings are commonly described as jimson weed which would be Datura stramonium but to me the leaves have more the look of Datura metel.

  1. Probably O'Keeffe used Datura wrightii as a model for her paintings.
