Daturas are species of about a dozen herbaceous short lived perennial tropical flowering shrubs. They are often confused with Brugmansias, and while they do have some characteristics in common, they are not the same. Like the Brugmansias, the Daturas have large, trumpet shaped flowers that are highly fragrant at night. Plants generally grow smaller and more shrub like. The flowers generally point outwards rather than hanging upside down. The flowers of Datura metel are large doubled, outward pointing trumpets in soft gray to lavender toned white, backed and edged with eggplant purple. It grows large very quickly, easily becoming 5 to 6 feet tall with an equal spread in a single season, but remains full and bushy. In the tropics it begins blooming early in the late spring and continues into the Fall until the nights cool and the days get short. Flowers last for 2-3 days. Bloom can be maximized and extended by removing seed pods before the ripen, as it is the general habit of the species, to grow vigorously during the warm season, produce seed, and enter dormancy from which it does not always emerge. Seed pods are about the size of a golf ball, which is somewhat larger than the average for other Datura metels and are a bit oddly shaped with thorn-like spines. All parts of this plant are toxic . This plant is intended for use as an ornamental, decorative item only. All parts of the Datura species contain compounds that are scientifically validated as biologically active. Emerald Goddess Gardens does not recommended nor endorse the ingestion or other use of ornamental plants for homeopathic treatments, herbal remedies, spiritual experience enhancement, or recreation.
