Looking for the Name of a Plant

My in law has a plant that has pretty much became a bush. It is beautiful. It only blooms at night with these beautiful white flowers. On the very bottom of the plants are growing these round balls with stickies on them. Inside of these are tons of seeds. This plant gives of a lovely scent. The only thing is that we do not know the name of it. If anybody can help with the name we would greatly be appreciated.

How about taking a piece to your local nursery and ask them? They should be glad to help!

My husband owns a garden center and he thinks it may be a moon flower. However, the moon flower plant is nonhardy in all zones except 9 and 10. Do your Inlaws live in a warm climate?

It sounds like Jasmine. Are the leaves shiny and evergreen? Your County Agricultural Extension Agent would be able to identify it correctly for you if you bring a sample to him or her.

Good luck! It sounds wonderful.

The name of this plant is Da Tura. It is also known as the Spirit plant. Go to your search engine (Google) and read about Da Tura. It is a plant that you do not want to have as it is very dangerous and was used back in the days of Mayan human sacrifices. The leaves and seed pod are a hallucinogen.

That plant, moonflower, is aka Datura. It is hearty and has a beautiful bloom and sweet fragrance, but keep the children and pets from eating it and you and the plant/bush will be fine. I have several. The round thorny pods fall and more plants spring up, but it does have an interesting history and more recently, deadly results of dummies looking for a cheap high.

This plant grows very well in my front yard. I received it from my parents. They didn't know the name of the plant. They did know that this plant was useful for curing some diseases, it acts as an antibiotic. The leaves can be eaten and the fruit tastes very sour. Maybe you can help me to find out what is this plant? Thank you.
