Just as I decided I should take a picture of it last week ...it quit blooming!! I guess it goes in flushes.
Been watching it waiting to it to bloom again. Its huge and covered in buds right now. I've cut it back twice already this season. When it blooms again I'll get some early morning shots and post them here for you to see.
It looks like a normal datura, aka moonflower bush. The scent is different though.
My brugs are just barely staying alive. :( This heat is just too much for them even with regular watering. I quit fertilizing them back early July. Its just too much to ask of them to produce blooms or growth right now. :(
Can't wait until mid Sept. Nights are usually cooler by then and the flowering plants get a little rest from the heat.
U r correct n saying the dantura blooms n the day. This olants is also known as the angel trumpet.
I do not know why they put them n the same categories, one is a vine & 1 is a plant. Moon vines r of the morning glory category bot moon vines only bloom @ night. Do not let the categories scare u away. BOTH r beautiful plants. The Dantura comes in several colors & we grow them outside here n central La. It comes back every yr if mulched. The moon vine must b planted yearly. ENJOY THEM!
