Oh My!
That is gorgeous!
Lucky you!
I am growing a few triple purple Datura (seeds from Windsurffer) ..they are just seedlings right now..
but boy oh boy..that is a beauty! I have never seen one of those before..

I wonder how come we don't see as many of these daturas as we do the brugmansias. It's easier to enjoy the blooms on these. Is it possible to get a cutting from you in the future?

I grew a bunch of a double or triple datura from seed this year, I see a lot of big fat buds, I hope they turn out something like this, can't wait to see. Yours is gorgeous.

Do you happen to have any seeds from this plant?
