Devil’s trumpet

(Question)

Hi,

I saw Devil’s Trumpet, triple purple datura growing in a public garden. I fell in love with it, but after reading up on it I see that it is poisonous. I have two dogs and a cat, would it be too dangerous to plant it?

You are wise to have been cautious! Indeed, the Pet Poison Hotline service for vets and pet owners advises that this plant is poisonous for both dogs and cats. Enjoy looking at it in the public garden!
