Description for Datura, Dhatura

The blooms may be held upright or dangle like bells along the stem depending on the species. Flowers have a wonderful fragrance and are often followed by the development of interesting seed pods with a textured or spiny surface. The foliage and flowers are beautiful but can be dangerous if consumed by humans. Take care to locate the plant away from children and pets.

Datura is a genus of nine species of poisonous vespertine flowering plants belonging to the family Solanaceae. They are commonly known as daturas, but also known as devil s trumpets, not to be confused with angel s trumpets, its closely related genus Brugmansia.

Planting and care

Sow seeds directly outside into a prepared bed in fall in warmer climates and in early spring after all danger of frost has passed in cooler climates. You can grow trumpet flower inside or outside in a pot, or simply spread seed with a light coat of sand outside in a sunny location.

Caring for Datura

Datura plants growing in colder zones will require you to move the plant indoors or just let it reseed and start new plants.
