Planting and care
Potted plants need special Datura trumpet flower care and annual repotting. The plants may lose leaves in winter if left outside in milder climates but spring back in warmer temperatures. Datura plants growing in colder zones will require you to move the plant indoors or just let it reseed and start new plants.
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.
