The name Thornapple is applied to several related species of Datura, a genus belonging to the same family as a number of plants cultivated either for ornament or their commercial value. Among the garden subjects are the petunia, cestrum and schizanthus, while the potato, tomato, capsicum and tobacco are also well known members. The trumpet-flowered shrub referred to by some nurserymen as Brugmansia is D. arborea and a smaller plant, D. metel is also grown in gardens.
