Those are pretty. I love the shiny ones, lol. I see you have a second skirt hiding in there. I have one bloom on Pink Perfektion and the inner skirt didn't drop on it either.

Your photos are beautiful. I've started growing the purple dats, BUT it seems to be dieing, the leaves are falling, and I'm not sure if the pods are to be hard or soft. PLEASE HELP. I have it potted in full direct sun. Also would love to find a red angel trumpet or another color.

Thx

Congrats, Isabella is one of my more reliable bloomers. I can stick it anywhere in about any different soil, light, etc and it does well.
Rosalla is one of my all time favs.

I have it in regular Miracle Grow Potting soil. I did move the pot under a tree for some shade, but as of today, no real progress, but it's not yellowing.

I love them! I am excited for my first blooms!!

Lov_todig: you should snap off the pods if you want them to keep blooming. Plants have one agenda: to send a flower and set seed... so if you cut off the seed pod, you will get more blooms!

Are your dats wet? Yellowing might ne because of too much water or not enough nutrients. Mine are in full sun till about 4pm and they are huge! I water them only when the top 6" are and give them fert. once a week. They are now 3' tall and covered with blooms (I snap off every spent flower so they do not set seed, not just pull them off, I snap the purple 'marble' behind the flower head).

I will let them form pods in the fall.

I hope that helps!

Thanks Keriann,

I'll try your suggestions. I so look forward to the purple dat blooming again. The yellow and white Bergs are growing beautifully, I planted them some years ago. The purple dats are giving me the problems. Also have seeds for the white dats, but became discouraged and haven't tried to plant them.
