Jimsonweed is occasionally grown as an ornamental. I allow a few volunteer plants in my yard and vegetable garden each year. They attract bees, butterflies and moths. The thorny fruit capsules are used in dried arrangements. Jimsonweed is grown commercially in Europe for the alkaloidal drug, hyoscyamine. It also contains the powerful alkaloids atropine and scopolamine.
