Datura, Torna Loco (D. ceratocaula), packet of 10 seeds, organic
Annual. 100 days to flowers.
(Torna Loco, Atlinan) Fleshy, water-loving annual, native to Mexico. “Crazy twisted datura.” Source of toxic alkaloids, never ingest any part of this plant! Bears non-thorny pods that dangle like eggs from a thick, glabrous and fleshy stem that tends to repine and is curved like an animal’s horn (etymology of ceratocaula). The flowers emit the fragrance of wintergreen (methyl salicylate), that wafts enticingly across the garden in evening and morning. The flowers are showy and prolific. I found these to be very growable despite the fact that my garden is not very wet. Sow the seed in the greenhouse in early spring, or directly in rich beds in the spring garden. Work up seedlings in pots and transplant or thin to 2 feet apart. These plants will sprangle and flower much to the delight of all nature.
