    Datura...Jimson weed...moon flower--beautiful plant. I love them...they grow into a fairly large shrub. I'd have one myself if I had the space for it. Flowers open at night and moths pollinate it.

    But Ozzy...you be careful with that. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Its poisonous.

    I'm curious to know if you guys know what colors the blooms are in the seed you have?

    Woa wait a second, are we talking about a VINE or a PLANT. There's a big difference between a Brugmansia and a moonflower/morning glory.

    Ozzy,

    I have some seed of the white flowered Datura. It is definitely poisionous. I read about some folk that tried to get off by eating it. After their experience they were moved to write a long article on the subject! Now I wash my hands after touching it. The flowers have a great perfume to them. It's a cool plant!

    Hi Ozzy -

    Both Brugmansia and Datura are tropicals referred to as "Angels Trumpets" and all parts of both are very poisonous. We put them behind some fencing so the dogs don't accidentally ingest them.

    Daturas are usually grown as annuals, from seed. The flowers point up or up/sideways. Brugmansias are perrennials, with long flowers that hang and point down - I plan to cut ours back and bring it indoors for the winter. The ones I watered and sprayed with compost tea got HUGE this summer.

    I can send you seeds from the Datura (white flowers purplish centers), or try to take cuttings of the Brugmansias (not sure the color yet, both about to flower) for you.

    Let me know if you are interested.
