Looks like you have yourself some Datura seedlings, also called moon flower, moon bush, moon flower bush, etc. Depending on the type, you probably have ones with big white, very heavenly scented flowers. Just don't let those puppies drop seeds all over. LOL My guess is that your seeds were round and flat and sort of beige, kind of like pepper seeds??

OOh I can't wait! I thought they looked pretty gosh darn similar to the brug seedlings I started, but these have a little bit of fuzziness to them, and they are growing faster. I'd better get out there and move them so they will have enough room to grow big and happy.

Well Doll, one can get at least 5x5 feet here in my zone 6 and over winter and self seed. LOL So you better stand back. :) Seriously, they leave a big turnip like root in the ground and grow back from that each year.

wow, sounds like 4 o'clocks! fine with me, I looked through my seed packets and found this one, the seeds do look like bell pepper seeds, just like you described, yippeeeeee! I can use them to make a hedge to block the view of my neighbors neglected yard, when I look out my window I see knee high weeds and a rusty old truck, I'd much rather see a jungle of beautiful sweet smelling flowers. Thanks, you've made my day! :o)~

LOL Good to know it is barely noon and I have made one person smile. :) Yes I would certainly bet you could make a quick hedge of them. They do fine in full sun and with normal or less watering once they take off. Be careful with the seed pods-the bite. LOL
