    Are you talking about Datura also known as Angels Trumpet ? If so don`t worry,, when the seed bursts you will have them everywhere. These are toxic plants also known as "loco weed". If different plant,, post a pic.

    Datura innoxia (Hindu Apple, Indian Apple, Downy Thornapple)

    Brugmansia X candida (Angel's Trumpet)

    Click on the blue links,these are both called Angel's Trumpet by some.

    On the Datura a spiny ball will form after the bloom dies, it will turn brown, open and the seeds will fall out.

    The Brugmansia, the seed pods are long instead of round like a ball.

    If you protect the roots on the Datura you might get new growth next spring...don't know about rooting the cuttings.
    Supposedly the Brugmansia cuttings will root.

    I grow the Datura double metel... known as Angel or Devil's trumpet... also known as Ballerina Angel Trumpet (due to it's frilly appearance like a ballerina's tutu).
    Is this the one you have?

    Its seed pods are the spiny round one's Toni mentioned. Just let one of the flowers live out it's life. Once it drops off, the pod will develop. It'll start to turn brown and split. That's when you harvest the seeds. They will start very easy. I've never tried taking a cutting, because they grow pretty fast
