Graphite pencil line drawing of a moonflower from my garden last year. Altered on ps with layers and filters.
These flowers are very large and the buds look like folded linen, they are white with a beautiful blue tinge to them. I have had other varieties of singles ,doubles and different colors but these are my favorites.
Datura belongs to the classic “witches’ weeds,” along with deadly nightshade, henbane, and mandrake. Most parts of the plants contain toxic hallucinogens, and datura has a long history of use for causing delirious states and death. It was well known as an essential ingredient of love potions and witches’ brews.
