"Angel's Trumpet" - You won't find datura in a bulb book, (it's actually found in a genus of 5 species of shrubs and small trees). Although adaptable to a mixed border in the deep South, it's best grown in a tub located on a terrace or patio. Continuous flushes of 6 to 10 inch trumpet-shaped flowers appear all summer long. Hanging from the branches like fluted bells, the blooms perfume the air with their splendid fragrance. Plants grow rapidly, 3 to 4 feet the first year, producing stout stems and dark green leaves. First year blooms are limited, but overwinter in an area protected from freezing, water occasionally, and when spring arrives a larger plant will emerge and bloom prolifically.
