The seed pods of Datura metel 'Black Currant Swirl' are round with little raised bumps and take several weeks to ripen. When they are ripe, they just fall apart. To collect all the seeds, loosely cover each seed pod with a fine netting. This is a picture of a ripening seed pod.
This is the first year for me to grow a purple one and I love them. I hope to have one in the garden next year
Datura metel is my favorite. It seemed very slow in growing but once it matured it has been awesome!
Datura metel, grown in a pot, started from a seed from a friend's plant.
This is my purple datura. This is the first year I have grown them. But this one doesn't smell good.
My favorite Datura of 2006
