looks like it to me!the one in the back? what is that fun flower in the front?

Sharpsville, PA(Zone 5a)

I just measured mine. Its 30" tall in the center and 53" wide. From side to side. Is that normal size I wonder? For one plant>

(Zone 5a)

The plant in the front is a triple purple datura and yes that is about the right size for the plants. Evert said his plant was almost 3' tall. I cut mine back to keep it from killing the other plants, do you know how to collect seeds from it?

Sharpsville, PA(Zone 5a)

Nope! I have had it 2 years and have just always cut it back. Sorry

Pawnee, IL

this plant in a show stopper to say the least... every fall at least 3 or 4 people stop and ask me what "that beautiful shrub is" lol it is so large it looks like one.. I received a start from a fellow gardener and have divided it sucessfully for myself and for others in the spring... good luck....
