Aphids and lost leaves

New Port Richey, FL(Zone 9a)

I love my Datura, I only have three, a double purple, a double yellow and a white one. I have a terrible problem with aphids on them. The plants are still quite young, I received them at a Round up, but they have all bloomed, however, the leaves have fallen off the lower part of the plant and they look very leggy. I have been treating them for the aphids with a home made mixture that I got here at Dave's. I don't think it is the mixture, since I use it on other plants that are fine. Is it due to the winter, or are they ill? They just bloomed for me last week, one bloom on each plant. I did not get seed pods though. Any advice would be appreciated :0)
