River Wash Plant ID - Phoenix, AZ

This plant grew spontaneously from seed in my creek wash here in the Phoenix, Arizona, area. I have not given it any supplemental water and it has flourished, although I doubt it will survive our summer. Any ideas?

Thanks for the response. It definitely is a datura wrightii.

Here's a shot of the same plant, a few days later.
