Purple Ballerina Datura - Organic

Datura metel
(95 days) Perennial in Zone 8-10. This summer my friend called at short notice to come enjoy her night-blooming cereus, whose bloom would solely last the night. So 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 Purple Ballerina: with upward-facing 6–8" lilac petals striped with deep purple 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. BACK!
