Hi I just thought I would share this photo of the ballerina double purple I have had for three years. It blooms just fine in a pot that is about quart size. I transplant it into a gallon size later in the spring usually and then overwinter it back in the smaller pot and keep semi dry in the garage (just a few windows) It rarely freezes here but last winter it did. I am going to keep it growing and see how long it will last. The only benefit is that it blooms much sooner than the ones I start from seed each year.
Wow! Three years is amazing. I love the ballerina datura, they are always so pretty. It's always so funny to see flowers as big or bigger than the actual plant. That happens a lot with brugmansia cuttings that bloom.
Here is a picture of a white ballerina from 2 years ago.
I think the flower in that photo was as big as the pot lol. It is really wierd when it gets several on it.
I love your white ballerina! I tried white and I got a very washed out off white/pretty much yellowish white~ I wonder why? Perhaps some variation in temperature or something? Or are the whites just different~ Is there a such thing as cream colored? I had the yellow as well and it was actually yellow not cream...so I am really wondering. This year I am trying some of the larger double white (in big pots lol) but so far they haven't bloomed so I dont know how white they will be. I want mine to be white white like yours!
