Datura, Sacred (Datura wrightii), packet of 10 seeds

(1 customer review)


Family:  Nightshade (Solanacea)

Hardy to Zones 8 to 12

(Sacred Datura)  Evergreen or herbaceous perennial native to the deserts of Southern California and the SW US and Mexico.  This plant will flourish in disturbed soil in full sun with almost no water.   Flowers flaring white trumpets on a plant that sprawls and can cover a lot of territory (up to 15 feet wide).  Traditional usage (American Indian): shamanic.  All parts of the plant are toxic and no part of this plant should ever be ingested.  Sow seeds in spring.  Use a sandy, alkaline mix (cactus mix) or sow outdoors in fast draining soil.  Barely cover seed and tamp well, then water and allow to dry out before watering again.  Keep doing this until germination occurs.  It can take some time.  I’ve seen the seeds germinate all at once after the potting soil became dry and very hot, in the direct sun.  GA3 speeds germ.

10 seeds/pkt., Open Pollinated, Untreated, NO GMO’s

    Love this plant


    Absolutely love this plant. Toxic, yes, but clearly not for the insects. Take a load off at sunset and watch the honeybees and bumblebees go nuts. They will take turns diving into the flowers… before they even open! Cheaters! Amazing aroma too. By next days heat, flowers will wilt. Then the show starts all over again come sunset…
