Annual. (May be grown as a tender perennial in USDA zones 7 or milder). Blooms mid-summer to first fall frost. 2'-3' tall. Full sun. Exotic 6 trumpet-shaped blooms that are white and tinged with lilac. Sweet citrus scent is strongest in the evening after the flowers open. An excellent addition to a moon garden! Given time, Datura will produce interesting walnut-sized spiky seed pods. (Remove to prevent re-seeding if it is not desired.) Also called, Thornapple. All parts of this plant are poisonous and should be kept away from children and pets.
When to plant outside: Spring, 1-2 weeks before average last day of frost. Easy to start outdoors, but takes some time to emerge (21-42 days).
When to start inside: Sow 4-6 weeks before last spring frost. Transplant very carefully. Soaking seeds for 24 hours before planting will help with the slow germination."
