Sacred Datura is a native, but poisonous, desert plant that offers stunning blooms. Often seen at the side of the highway, it's found a home in Norm's yard.
The caterpillar, Tomato Hornworm, is one of few pests that eat Datura. The damage is seen in the pictures below.
Norm Schilling is the owner of Schilling Horticulture and he'll be talking about fall planting at this month's Desert Companion on Tour event on the 21st .
