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.
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
