This annual plant has huge, floppy, trumpet-shaped white flowers, that open from early summer and on into late autumn, being very fragrant at night. The flowers at first grow upright but incline downwards later, and finally turn into spiky seed pods. It typically reaches a height of 0.6 to 1.5 metres, stems and leaves being covered with short and soft greyish hairs, giving the whole plant a grayish appearance. All parts of the plant emit an odour similar to peanut butter when crushed or bruised. Like all daturas, all parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested.
