The bloom of the sacred datura (also called moon lily or moon flower) is often seen throughout the park in the summer. This familiar looking plant is a member of the family Solanaceae, a close relative of the tomato, potato, and eggplant. However, unlike some of the other edible plants in this family, every part of the datura is poisonous. Look for the datura’s beautiful bloom in the early evening and at night when its flower unfurls. By noon the next day, it will typically be closed.
