    Hi! I'm fairly sure these are Devil's trumpets, but I'm not 100% positive. At any rate, my mother in law is inundated with seeds from this beautiful flower. The plants get to the size of a small bush, and starting in mid to late summer, produce large (3 to 4 inch diameter, 4 to 5 inch long) trumpet-shaped fragrant white flowers.

    Oh, these plants are poisonous, so keep away from critters or KIDS that will much... I don't even think DEER will bother these.

    I don't know if they are annuals or perrenials, but they come back every spring...whether from seed or dormant root is unknown.

    Hearty to at least zone 5.

    Anyone interested? Trades are appreciated, as my mother in law loves plants of all kinds, however I will certainly send out seeds for s.a.s.e

    Piranha, I'm not sure. I know that if you cut the flowers, you have to be careful not to nick yourself with the scissors. But just touching the plant won't bring any unfavorable results. I've transplanted a few seedlings with *twitch* no problems *twitch*

    Just wear gloves to be safe! *spasm*

But theres no worry because these are grown outside and its not like your having a datura salad [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] . i have thousands of seeds also.

    Hey CK,
    Well thanks for the tidbit. Datura, you say? Nightshade family, right? At any rate, the booms on this sucker are pure white...There might be a yellowish tint deep in the throat, but I can't quite remember....might be remembering the light shining through the walls in the evening or something else poetic.

    And yes, those seed pods are SHARP.

    I have two... they got attacked by tomato/tobacco (not sure) hornworms. ... they're really ugly-looking :P
    just one question... will they flower in full shade?

    There are plenty of nasty stories circulating the underground spirit-bending cult about these beautiful plants. I'm actually surprised no one here has yet mentioned anything as far as what the effects of the toxins in Datura has on animals. I think it's basically a very very very long night terror mixed with numbness and delirium. From what I have read it seems to make a heroin overdose seem like a half-pint of the weakest beer you can get in Salt Lake City.
    There's one nasty case of an 18 year old male in Germany who suppposedly drank a tea made from Datura parts, then proceeded to cut certain pieces of his body off (if you want details, search the net, 'cos I'm not going into the gruesomeness of it all (you can also check erowid.org for any crazy info)).
    I for one would stay away from any risks of ingestion of any plant material, including seeds. In sufficient quatities the poison will kill.
    I find them beautiful nonetheless! A living death indeed!

    My 2 cents (or should I say pennies?)
    Amori

    PS. No, I have not or shall never take any of the drugs mentioned, as well as many many others!
