    oh i've heard of this plant . i grow it as well . my neighbor had a big tree and she gave me cuttings and they wonderfully . they flowers bloom all day and are big , i don't know why you think they smell good to me it smells musky a bit . i've enerv heard of them being annuals , your probably thinking abiut brugmansia probably or jimsom weeds that i can find growing as a weed anywhere , there seed pods are spikey and the sap from any part of the plant is poisonous . i've seen amny forms , tree growing , low growing , bush growing , white flowered , oink flowered , yellow flowered , all sorts . my plant datura does not make seeds for some reason . if your talking about the vine morning glory i have that too but it grows like a weed .

    It is a very pretty plant. I have one about six feet tall. It will kick out about 20 HUGE pink flowers at a time. In Florida, it needs shade during the hot afternoons to thrive.

    Very. Dangerous. Plant. I have it fenced away from the dogs. My neighbor that it faces made a joke about it. I hope it was a joke. I feel like posting a warning sign over it.

    Of course, how do I get it? The Lowe's around here that gets the odd stuff had a plant just sitting around. Label: "Angel's Trumpet -- Part Sun" Me: "Pretty." I thought the name sounded like a veiled warning, "Hmm, when would you hear an angel's trumpet?"

    When you're dead! Doh!

    I get home, put it in an internet search engine. "Whoa, honey, this is not going in the back yard.

    Datura is called Devil Trumpet while Brugmansia is called Angel Trumpet

    it is easy to tell apart from this two genus if you remember this poem:

    Angel Trumpet
    look down from Heaven.
    while Devil Trumpet
    look up from ####.

    trumpets



    ]
    EdEducate me -
    Angel trumpets = perenials
    Devil trumpets = annuals

    Reason asking never heard of devil trumpets and I saw a double purple and white trumpet and thought it was an angel. My wife not being well and loving purple I ordered seeds. I grew several and brought the plant inside to her and just oooooood and ooooooooooh over it.

    I would like if possible to obtain some red and yellow angel trumpet seeds.

    Any assistance given is appreciated.

    God Bless
