Growing daturas in Hattiesburg Mississippi

Hattiesburg, MS

Attached is a photo of a white datura plant that has resided in this spot for about five years now. It is aginst the northside of the house and comes back each year. Usually I have to dig out some sprouts each year because it grows new plants from dropped seed. The record for a single nights bloom, so far, is 94 blooms. I can assure you the yard has a wonderful aroma on the evenings when there are 20 or more blooms. I am wanting to interplant a couple of colored species to add to the beauty of this wonderful plant.
