    I was out watering the plants today and I was only fortunate to have one Datura ceratocaula ("Torno Loco" the only swamp growing datura) not keel over. It's still only 4" high or so but it's got a bloom coming!
    It'll be funny to see how big the bloom is on this tiny plant. I think I should probably stake the tiny stem so the flower doesn't kill the stem.

    I just wiped out a patch of 20+ plants at work.. They are definatly not roundup ready. Not Datura ceratocaula, but another Datura species. Didn't really look at them just noticed the seed pods.

    No, none locally that I know of in Minnesota. I'm just a Datura fan so I bought seed from everywhere and got all the species. Some are really weak as seedlings: D. ceratocaula, D. discolor, D. leichhardtii and D. quercifolia (oak leaf species). I only have one survivor of each I hope I can get seed for next year and maybe have better luck with fresher seed.
    The widespread species in the US is D. stramonium (Jimsonweed/Jamestown weed) often sold as seed packs labeled Devils Trumpet "fleur de lilac" (actually it's D. stramonium var. tatula) every seed of that species germinated easily.
