My seeds were planted March 20th, and are taking a long time to bloom. I would have thought the very hot summer would have been ideal datura weather. I note that the local wild Datura are in flower now, though.
This first batch (of 4) gave 100% germination rather rapidly, and made nice plants with purple stems. They all have tiny flower buds, so I am hopeful. The other batches are even slower coming along.
It seems to me Datura always have one magnificent first flower, then smaller flowers later on.
I really would like to save seeds, and see if this batch are stabilized as a seed strain--- to come 'true' from seed, or if further variations will appear.
