Potentially Deadly Toxic Plant Found Blooming On NYC Sidewalks - CBS Pittsburgh
CBS2’s Kiran Dhillon.
“It’s the exact same,” said Hoeffel. “The flower is very distinctive. It has this beautiful white coronation.”
As beautiful as the flowers may be, they are also highly toxic – even deadly if consumed.
That’s a shock to many of the people who walk by it every day.
“I’ve seen this plant many times, but never knew about the toxicity,” said Karen Dhostino.
“It’s just amazing how it even ended up here,” said Ronald Bongiovanni.
Though not that well known, the datura plant isn’t all that rare after all.
Experts say the plant, also known jimsonweed, is actually pretty common but can cause hallucinations if consumed.
“It’s not a plant you want growing in a very highly populated area where people might inadvertently consume it,” said former New York City Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe.
Benepe spotted the plant during a bike ride this weekend.
He says he’s seen many more just like it around the city.
“It’s a plant that spreads very quickly through seeds and will colonize disturbed soil,” he said. “It’s kind of what happens if you create a planting bed and don’t maintain it.”

Benepe says the plant is dangerous.
“If a child were to ingest one of those seed pods, it could be very serious complications including death,” he said.
Another major concern is the possible impact on drug users.

Royal wedding flowers shared out to charities
Mrs Clayton said she worked on the skilled and fine detail embroidery on the Queen's wedding and coronation outfits.
Floral designer Phillippa Craddock directed a team, including florists from St George's Chapel and Buckingham Palace, to create the wedding displays at St George's Chapel and for St George's Hall in Windsor.

Kensington Palace has said the floral displays in St George's Chapel were created using locally sourced foliage, much of which was taken from the gardens and parkland of The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park.
These included branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, as well as white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves.
Father Peter-Michael Scott, the hospice's lead chaplain, felt the flowers were a special gift from the royal couple and noted they had already made several people at the hospice smile.
He said: "It (the flowers and the ceremony) connects with a celebration of love and life and in the midst of all that, this newly married couple have been thinking of others and are demonstrating that by donating to others.
"It is about the energy of love. We are absolutely thrilled by the flowers and wish them (Harry and Meghan) all the best for the future."
Mrs Clayton said she was 19 when she worked for 49-and-a-half hours on the train of Queen's wedding dress.
Only half-joking, she recalled: "To a certain extent it was exciting and my dad was over the moon. I could not say anything to anybody or else I could have been prosecuted or something at the end of the day."
She remembered working on the design, shrouded in secrecy, in Bruton Mews near Sir Norman's extraordinary salon in Bruton Street, in the heart of London's West End. She recalled that "people used to try to rent the rooms in the pub opposite to try to see what we were doing."
The Royal Collection Trust notes that the Queen also requested that in addition to the four national emblems, those of the Dominions of which she was now Queen should also be added to her coronation dress.
Mrs Clayton said she worked on the embroidery for lotus flower of Ceylon, which later became Sri Lanka, which appeared on the coronation dress.
