Datura
I am writing this articale in hopes that I can clear up awhole lot of confusion. There are two plants being called Angel's Trumpet. Datura (Thorn Apple) (Devil's Trumpet) all the same. And Brugmansia (Angel's Trumpet). Two totaly different plants.Datura is bush like with blooms that point up (Devil's Trumpet). They produce fruit pod which can have 100's of seeds in each one (Thorn Apple).
When I saw my first Brugmansia I had to have one. It was so beautiful I had to have more. So I ordered seeds. I received a few Brug. seeds and lots of Datura seed. When the Datura grew and bloomed, I was disappointed, they were not what I thought I was growing. So the next year I ordered more Brug. seeds and again I received Datura seeds. I had to call the company and explain that I had ordered Brugmansia seed not Datura. Their reply "Well they are all angels trunpet", Needless to say after a slightly heated discussion I got my Brugmansia seed. I still grow Datura, but Brugmansia is my favorite. I have 27 now.
