Datura Inoxia is a white-flowered datura species held sacred by Hindus and the Aztecs. Inoxia is very similar to datura metel, and it was formerly known as datura meteloides. It may also be used interchangably with datura wrightii. Inoxia, sometimes spelled innoxia, is native to Central and South America, but it has been introduced to other parts of the world. It is often grown as an ornamental plant for its large dark green leaves and heavenly white flowers. The flowers are known for having a pleasant fragrance too. Datura Inoxia has tropane alkaloids similar to those of other daturas, henbane, mandrake and nightshades. They are highly toxic to humans and most animals, so care should be taken to avoid ingestion. Despite their extreme toxicity, the plants did have some history of traditional medicine and homeopathy. But the high likelihood of overdose and the availability of alternative treatments have wiped out most use other than by very small sectors of the population. It is usually grown as an annual, but it can be kept perennially if prevented from freezing. Some reports indicate hardiness down to zone 6.
