I have been unsuccessful trying to find out what this is on my own. Can I beg assistance from the group? Thanks

Jimson Weed (Datura stramonium) - may have yellow, pink or white flowers. In any case it's highly toxic, hallucinogenic and invasive, can get huge and choke out your other plants and you need to get rid of it as soon as possible. Do NOT put the destroyed plant or the seed pods onto a compost heap, it all needs to be burned or go to trash. Wear gloves when you pull it out of the ground and make sure you get all the roots out of the ground.

Good.


Be careful you don't get any sap or plant oils anywhere on your skin when you're handling it, some people can be highly reactive to the atropine in it just from touching the plant, so no point in taking any risks.

Yes, that's Jimson Weed. Great advice above. If you have any livestock or critters who might possibly eat it, be certain you remove it from any area where they might have access. I had to pull out by hand about a 1/4 acre area in one of my pastures before I could put my sheep and horses on it. I bagged it up in a plastic trash bag as I went along and made certain that I didn't drop any leaves or other debris. I put it into the trash as I wasn't certain that the smoke from the burn pile wouldn't be toxic. It is dreadful stuff.
