Datura metel (95 days) Perennial in Zone 8-10, grown as an annual. Last summer my friend called at short notice to come enjoy her night-blooming Cereus, whose bloom would only last the night. I hustled over and inhaled an exquisite fragrance not soon to be forgotten—or repeated. But imagine that kind of vesperal scent delivered each and every night. Enter Ballerina Mix: with upward-facing 6–8" petals in combinations of purple and white or cream with white that unfurl at dusk to exude a lily-like fragrance. Brava! Growing 3–4'; in the garden, they thrive in summer heat and attract moth pollinators at night. When planted in containers they grow to a more manageable 2–3' and can be moved to where their fragrance will be most enjoyed at night. Caution: All parts of these plants are poisonous so use caution around children and pets. And hummingbirds have been known to OD if datura is their sole source of nectar. NEW!①
