Wow! Beautiful! I saw one last summer and got some seeds from it, but they didn't sprout. Disappointed to say the least. Rose

I have the same plant and would like to know how to collect the seeds from them? I think that it is the same plant.

I just measured mine. Its 30" tall in the center and 53" wide. From side to side. Is that normal size I wonder? For one plant>

The plant in the front is a triple purple datura and yes that is about the right size for the plants. Evert said his plant was almost 3' tall. I cut mine back to keep it from killing the other plants, do you know how to collect seeds from it?

this plant in a show stopper to say the least... every fall at least 3 or 4 people stop and ask me what "that beautiful shrub is" lol it is so large it looks like one.. I received a start from a fellow gardener and have divided it sucessfully for myself and for others in the spring... good luck...
