Perennials

DATURA

<span>Daturas are often confused with Brugmansias, and for good reason. Brugmansias and Daturas are both toxic, both are called angel’s trumpet, and both are fragrant in most cases. But Daturas are annual or herbaceous perennial, 3- to 6-ft.-tall plants with upward-pointing flowers and swollen, spiny (instead of bean-like) seedpods, while Brugmansias are perennial, large shrub or tree-size plants with pendulous or hanging flowers that are cocked out to the side a bit.

 

Datura innoxia

From southwestern deserts of the United States and Mexico. Lightly fragrant, upward-facing, 6- to 8-in. flowers may be white, pink, or lavender, with 10-in. leaves. Plant grows a yard high and wide. Spiny, egg-size fruits. Seeds sometimes self-sow. Good in containers.
