  • This specimen flower of the sacred datura (Datura wrightii) features a lavender margin edging its white, trumpet-shaped, golden-throated bloom.  Photographed at early sunrise, the fragile flower glows pale blue in indirect light bounced off the stucco walls of my garden where this bush grew. A sacred plant used in rites of passage and other ceremonies among various Native American tribes, Datura wrightii's flower essence appeals to modern holistic health practitioners seeking its visionary potential and affirmation of personal transformation.
