Seeds for Angel's Trumpet Flowers ( Datura and Brugmansia )


Important Note: Most of the seeds on this page will benefit greatly from using the CAPE Smoke Seed Germination Primer that we use in our own greenhouses. We find we receive significantly better germination results when we use this primer on Musa, palms, tropical, wildflower and other types of seeds.
We recommend you use CAPE Primer for all types of datura and brugmansia seeds.



Tips on Growing Brugmansia from Seed ( Brugmansia Growers International )


Tips on taking Brugmansia Cuttings ( Brugmansia Growers International )



Datura and Brugmansia can be grown in tubs and pots in cooler climates, and directly in the garden in warmer climates.

The Datura/Brugmansia seed we do not grow ourselves is provided from commercial growers from around the world, and often the photo and information accompanying the seed listing is from the grower. We have well meaning visitors to our site from time to time who wish to correct us on a listing or photo, but we must list the information as the grower provides. We apologize if this causes any confusion, and certainly appreciate any input from our customers.



Datura

3590 Double White ( Datura metel )
The plant is quite compact in containers, reaching only about 1 to 2 feet high. In the garden, it forms a dense, well-branched shrub to 3 feet tall and slightly wider. Normally treated as an annual, the plant can be over-wintered in a greenhouse environment.
The ruffled Datura white double flowered like a Rose and with just a hint of cream at the center. This eye-popping datura looks like something from a hot-house instead of an easy-to-grow, sun-loving tropical you can start from seed. Beginning in early Summer and continuing until the Fall weather sets in, the plant is covered with magnificent blooms, so fragrant that a single plant perfumes the garden ( fragrance is less we have noticed when grown in containers ).
The flowers are immense with 6 to 8 inch flowers exquisitely whorled and twisted to show off their beauty. Green leaves complement the flowers. The stems and buds have a black currant stain. The flowers are followed by highly ornamental fruits, remaining decorative for long periods. All parts of plant are poisonous if ingested. Hardiness zones 7-11

A note from one of our customers:

Jim,
Enjoying the first bloom of an Oak Leaf Datura. What a delicious fragrance! I have several Datura/Brugmansia, mostly grown from seed. The bloom is especially lovely considering what happened.
I planted the seed that I ordered from you in September forgetting that I had to go out of town for two weeks. Rather than watering them I enclosed entire flats in plastic and placed in my outdoor greenhouse. When I opened the plastic the first of October many of the seeds had germinated and were leggy. I immediately potted them up in 4" pots and fertilized.
And now my first reward. Most of the 50 remaining plants are looking healthy. So a big mistake can work out. Isn't nature great.
Can't wait to plant the seed that I ordered from you during your sale, but I am waiting until I return home in March. Thank you for the wonderful additions to my gardens. Nancy
