My mother is on acreage and this plant just appeared in her veggie garden recently - we're not sure if it's a weed or something else - any ideas? I have more photos
Thanks in advance

Datura stramonium. Highly invasive weed.

RE: Any ideas?

I thought it may have been a Castor Oil plant but no. I have seen it before and I would regard it as a weed. Dont let those seed pods burst it could multiply the problem.


RE: Any ideas?

I agree. I've seen those things growing in large numbers down by the creek near us. They seemed to appear out of nowhere. Apparently they're poisonous too! D:
