You told me to put her with the big kids, but I have been busy until today. I was cleaning all the plants on the front porch and separating what needed to be potted up and look what a surprise I found...had to bring her in the house...the winds are still gusting over 40mph today again!!! She is in a 4" pot...I took one blurry pic and the batteries went out on camera...just had to share with someone!!!

That's not a datura .. that's a brugmansia.

You have a brugmansia. The nursery is wrong. There is no such thing as a peach or pink datura. That is unquestionably without a doubt 100% sure a brugmansia. The picture is of some of my pink brugmansia. Datura come in white, yellow, purple, lavender and tan.

There is a brugmansia form on here that you should start reading.

one way to tell the difference is that Datura flower is upright, and Brugmansia hangs down, that is all you realy need to remember. *S*
