Datura Metel


By Meanie

Datura Metel (Datura solanaceae)

This is bursting with buds. Should have my first flower in the next couple of days hopefully.

Well, what a coincidence ! My future son-in-law has just asked if I would like a Datura from his parents garden. How's that for creeping to your future mother-in-law ... lol ! (Hope he's asked his parents ! )

How do I break this gently...............????
All parts of the Datura are highly toxic!!!!!

Seriously though - always wash your hands after touching just to be on the safe side, and don't allow young children (or eczema sufferers) to come into contact with it.

LOL ... he's just asked for our daughters hand in marriage ... I may need to have a quiet word with him on his choice of plant !

On the plus side, they do have a heavenly scent.
