Very Hardy and easy to grow in Southern Texas Zone 9, Datura Metel Double Black Currant Swirl is one of my favorite flowers! I'm currently on the lookout for other colors. If you are aware of a source or can send me seeds or cuttings please shoot me an email and I'll cover postage etc!

Mine was a double Datura Metel (blue, but looks purple)... however once proagated it reverted to single white, I will be trying again this year with a new plant I purchased and hopefully will get double purple again.

Datura metel
(Zone 6-2005) One of the best plants I have ever grown. Very easy to propagate. Gave many of them away and still had plenty. Wonderfully fragrant.

A very beautiful, very interesting looking plant. Very fragrant at night and a good part of the morning. Also, easy to grow.

Beautiul Triple Ruffled Flowers
I bought this plant for $3.00 because bugs had chewed up the leaves. The intriguing purple stems and the sales person's description of the triple-ruffled purple and white flowers convinced me to try it anyway.

The flowers are spectacular. A friend gave me seeds. Germination rate was excellent. Have lots of plants spread about in the garden.

I have a white and it does great in the full sun it topped out at about 5.5 feet, I have bought the double yellow and placed it in another of my flower beds and It has done just great, it is Oct, and it is srtill blooming strong in my zone 7 garden. I love these plants where I live it gets very hot and it does not really phase them.

Have been trying to obtain a Triple Yellow Datura here in Canada, but no luck . If anyone has seeds and would like to sell some to me I am very, very, interested. Thanks ever so much.

Triple yellow Datura
I started my triple yellow Datura from seeds in the winter and they were very slow to germinate. They really grow fast once it gets hot out. Mary from Gainesville, GA

This is also a very poisonous plant to ingest. No problem touching it or handling it, but don't grow it if you have small children or pets that eat things they shouldn't.

Devil's Trumpet, evening bloom.
I believe that this is the plant I grow from the investigation I've made of it. I know it as "Devil's Trumpet" and am growing 2 of them in large pots on my patio. One has developed a double flower, the other a tripple flower. I have no idea if this is normal.
