Our group was nameing plants from this family.Datura was unknown to me.The 
group thought it was the jimpson weed or the loco weed. To me these are the 
same plants.The tomato belongs to this family also. but who tried it out for 
food?Also, rhubarb has bad leaves,who found out that the stem was ok? In 
conclusion,does this plant live in the USA? Is any part edible?
