Datura discolor

Datura discolor Datura discolor

Pure white, fluted funnel-shaped 4” wide blooms feature an alluring deep indigo center & sweet evening fragrance. Held outwards from the branching stems, they’re not as upstanding as Datura metel ‘Belle Blanche’, but they sure are showy & the bloom season lasts a bit longer. A bit smaller foliage too, but the same attractive bluish-green color. In rich soil with regular water it can reach 3’ tall & 5’ across. In average drier soil, our plants reach a maximum of 3’ spread. Again, very tough, drought & heat tolerant, as well as deer and snail proof. Self sows! Native to California’s Sonoran Desert & south to Mexico. ALL PARTS POISONOUS!
