Sunny,
Very pretty. Here are my best shots. It's a double/triple purple datura and a very subtle yellow datura. I moved the purple one into a pot in the garage, it's not doing to bad. The seeds pods are all becoming ripe. Be interesting to see if it makes it through the winter.

Crystal, how large to yours grow when they are in a pot? I have always had mine in the garden soil. If you have any extra yellow seeds, I would love to trade for them!

Hi Teresa,
I had mine in the ground, also, until it turned cold weather. It was covered with seeds pods and I didn't want to loose them. So, I potted it up and put it in the garage. Almost all of the pods have ripened. The plant is in a 5 gallon pot, pretty well stuffed in there. That long tap root was a bear trying to get it down in there, it's very stiff. It will be interesting to see if it makes it through the winter.

Thanks .. I've sent the plants to florida in hopes that I can get seeds from the flowers .. I just love the tendrils. I would have kept them here but just didn't have room in the greenhouse.

Lily you have inspired me to go yellow this year. Last year I had the Black Currant Swirl out front and the year before that Ballarina White. This next year I'm going yellow.

Beautiful pictures and plants!

well, I only have one datura this year, which was enough to get me hooked... so I have seeds for next year... and in different colors... I have put seeds everywhere in my garden in hopes that it will come back next year... I didn't know I could have digg up the roots and bring inside... oh well, I hope it comes back... or I will cry!

Kassia, don't cry, just make sure you have lots of mulch (leaves will do) over the top of it! It will come back.

I started growing this plant last year, it got so big this year that my hubby couldn't reach the top. This is my orange one, this year I added a pink and a white.

Summerone, looks like you have a Brugmansia...a very pretty one at that! Brugs hang down, Daturas point up :)
