Datura wrightii
“Sacred Datura”

Got a neglected, HOT, DRY spot with POOR SOIL? Nativeto hot California and deserts of the Southwest, this stunning member of the Tomato family tolerates the harshest conditions as well as regular garden situations. Dramatic, bold, blue-green leaves form a compact 3' x 3' mound topped with marvelously huge, upright, pearly white, sweetly fragrant trumpets 8" across. Blooming from late Spring to Fall the glow-in-the-dark flowers close each sunny day around noon and reopen in the late afternoon – wonderful for moon gardens! Great in containers (15+ gal). Dead-head spent blooms to prevent spiky seed pods and any unwanted seedlings. Deer proof! All parts poisonous.
