Datura inoxia produces fragrant, large, white trumpet-shaped blooms that face upward. The blooms open in the evening and stay open until the sun rises. Many gardeners refer to them as moonflowers, and they are excellent for night gardens. Planted in groups, these flowers are very impressive. These beautiful bushy plants are also very heat- and drought-resistant.
Caution: All parts of Datura plants are quite poisonous, especially the seeds.
We cannot sell Datura seeds to those living in Connecticut, Kansas, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey, Oklahoma or Tennessee.
