Details

Black Currant Swirl is a double datura that blooms in an enchanting blend of violet and white. The trumpet shaped flowers are a dramatic addition to containers and borders.

In early times, Datura was considered an aid to the incantation of witches, and during the time of the witch and wizard mania in England, it was unlucky for anyone to grow it in their garden.

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.
