NOTICE:
These ARE NOT pond plants. Many saw them on my favorite land plants page and asked about where to buy them. So we started growing them for sale

EVERY PART OF THESE PLANTS ARE POISONOUS SO USE CARE. They are not poisonous to the touch but only if ingested. Do not place them in your ponds!
 

Double yellow Datura will be a new offering in the spring of 2010

A collage of Angel Trumpets/Brugmansia

Brugmansia annually grow into a small shrub in warmer climates of zone 9 or higher.  Here in zones 7, they go dormant and winter over just fine.  The plant dies back to the ground each fall and sends up new shoots every spring. 

In colder climates, less than zone 7, they can be grown as a patio plant and moved inside to a sunny window for the winter.

NOTE:   All parts of the plants are poisonous: the leaves, stems, roots, seedpods, and seeds. The flowers are generally the least poisonous of all the parts of the plant

The plant flowers nearly all the summer. The flowers are large and handsome, about 3 inches in length, growing singly on short stems springing from the axils of the leaves or at the forking of the branches. The calyx is long, tubular and somewhat swollen below, and very sharply five-angled, surmounted by five sharp teeth. The corolla, folded and only half-opened, is funnel-shaped, of a pure white, with six prominent ribs, which are extended into the same number of sharp pointed segments. The flowers open in the evening and on cloudy days for the attraction of night-flying moths, and emit a powerful fragrance.

Datura metel Purple Devil's Trumpet

Native to the Southwest and Mexico, Datura Metel is a member of the Nightshade family and related to Jimsonweeds. Now grown mainly for its showy, prolific trumpet flowers, it has been used since ancient times in sacred ceremonies and as a witch's herb. The 7" upright flowers are a striking purple and white.

Datura grows 3 to 5' tall and prefers sun.

Flowers are very fragrant and the fragrance can be smelled from quite a distance. I can smell them as soon as I walk into the 96' greenhouse! Many folks like to grow them in the house because of their fragrance.

Hardy zone 7 or higher and grown as perennial. In zones lower than 7 they are grown as an annual or cut back and wintered inside in a sunny window.
