Late Bloomer

Our backyard Datura plant is two and a half years old and really becoming quite the plant!  It is now over six feet tall and the blooms are spectacular.  I have Wikipedia-ed it and although there are quite a variety of Datura listed none match what we have.  Any plant lovers out there know what kind of Datura this is?


  1. Your lovely blossom looks to me like a Brugmansia sanguinea (Red Angel's Trumpet). Check out this site for more info:


    There are a lot of Datura/Brugmansia around town, some of which have a very strong odor that'e released at night.

    We, too, missed your blog and thought that you were revamping or some such thing.

  2. Thanks so much for telling me what this Datura is and pointing me to that excellent website!
