I'd sprouted out some that were given away... wishing I had kept one ... and out of a brug seedling pot.. came this.. obviously a Gordon's Picotee still holding true to it's Yellow Picotee on the white double flower... after some 8 years maybe.. I'll have to check to see when I first became aware of being the caregiver to what became known to me as Gordon's Picotee .. it's sometimes seen on E-Bay... sold by others as Gordan's Picotee... but that 's a misprint off a file name I had the pictures of it in my computer...the file was set up ... made for me by this Russain repair kid... Geee.. was it on my first PENTIUM... that will date it.. I kept it for awhile..

Well.. thanks... the white is usually purer... with a yellow edge... but this is the plants first flower and it took a bunch of rain during it's longer than usual formation.. but it is unusual... for datura.. when I first discovered it I was sure I'd over fed it.. or used some of my growth or flowering addatives too heavily... but others get it to look like that also

I had the double purple for a long time and it grew like gangbusters - then one day it just fizzled and didn't reseed. They are pretty easy to grow from seed aren't they? I never see them in any of the garden centers. . . I think the one I had I found at a place that carried unusual and antique or cottage flowers.

I planted the seeds from the 2012 flower.. And got it to come true again this year of the one that I grew out rit too was the same look of Gordon's Picotee of last year... So happy was I just lucky... Or is the transfer rate of the yellow Picotee look getting stronger than the 65% that it seemed to be the first year I found it

Still flowering...I love it when things get up to speed and start blooming... I wish it didn't also mean that it was fall and soon to be too cold
