Low lying, short-lived perennial, usually only growing 1-3ft in height, but may spread out several feet.

Datura inoxia contains the highly toxic alkaloids atropine, hyoscine (scopolamine), and hyoscyamine. Despite their high toxicity, at suitable doses these substances have beneficial medicinal effects, which were recognized in folk medicine throughout the world, and later on in scientific medicine.

It has also been planted throughout the world as an ornamental plant for its attractive large leaves, large white flowers, and distinctive thorny fruit.
