Datura metel 'Black Currant Swirl'
As with other daturas, all parts of this plant are poisonous. I've tried to grow this variety several times, with only limited success. As shown in the picture here, the plant is commonly attacked by flea beetles, which really drain its vigor. I don't know how large one can expect a first-year plant, grown as an annual, to get, and have not tried to overwinter my plants.
||tender perennial (Z8-11)
||well drained soil
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
