I am so excited. I started these from seed, and have several, I planted them in ground, in pots and placed them in different locations to see what they would like the most. This is the biggest one and the only one with blossoms and flowers. It is absolutely beautiful!
Last one...the sun is bright so I will take more later today! How long do the blooms last? Thanks so much "X" for allowing me to add these to my garden! I have tried with this seed several times and this is the second one that has grown for me. I have a white that isn't blooming yet, but it is in a pot and three years old.
Well done! There were two types of datura in the batch, I called them puffs & skirts. The picture shows the different types of flowers from the batch of seeds I originally got. The picture you posted is what I called puff's.
It has been so hot and dry this year, I gave up on my datura and let them go to seed.

JanetS, hope you don't mind me tagging on to your thread. My question for X may be useful to you, also.
X, is this the seed pod? Am I not supposed to let them form? How do I collect and store the seeds? These are also from the seeds you sent me and I've enjoyed them so much. They are very different from any other plant I have in my garden. Thanks!
I have two purple swirls and two with cream colored blooms. Vanilla? Forgot the name. This photo was taken in very harsh light and is hard to see but here is the largest purple swirl. The stalk is huge. It had to be tied to the fence railing to support it!
