This must be some sort of mouldy solanum?

Hi Rena.

I see you are on an "Identify the weed" spree!

This one is Datura Ferox. As most in the family, quite poisonous. http://www.iewf.org/weedid/Datura_ferox.htm

Regards

Clemens.

Rena :)
I hope you are not planning to send me seeds - think I can live without it.

Hi Rena

As far as I know they are from the same family. My Datura plants also make that round shape seed pod but  the thorns are smaller.

Hi Leroy.

Very pretty. I got a cutting of a very nice double white last year, and it's close to 2m now. Had about 20 flowers recently.

Below is a pic of some of the earlier flowers.



If you have a few extra seeds of the blue one Leroy, we must talk!

Hi Clemens

Seeds are not a problem.
Your flower is a brugmansai and not a datura.
Brugmansia flowers hang down Datura point up.

Very nice Leroy and Clemens - love the doubles of both Datura and Brugmansia

I had a single Brugmansia and the root system was horrendous - took me 3 years to get rid of it.

Does the Datura have a root system like that too ? They look like a smaller plant ?

Hi Abby
At this stage my Datura plants are 2 years old and the tallest one is just over 1 meter tall. So it seems to be quite smaller than the brugmansia plants.
