Here's my Datura inoxa (moonflower) my only one blooming currently
This flower went from bud to fully open since yesterday morning until 8 or 9 PM when it opened fully. This morning you can see the bloom is sill there but once the sun hits it at noon the flower will be shot but there's already one getting ready to open again tonight the tall twisty yellow bud you see. This Datura has a slight fragrance but not nearly as strong as my Lilium regale. I don't recall which Daturas I've had in the past which had a very overpowering fragrance. My other species are not blooming yet, my yellow double D. metel is getting ready to bloom a new flush, it smells like lemon pudding! I killed some bugs on that one with insecticidal soap which looked like a fuzzy white bug with big furry rabits ears any idea what those were?
Are you growing Daturas or Brugmansias? Lets see some shots!
My Brugmansia is taller than me but still not blooming even with 4-5 hours of direct sun per day any idea why?
