Box of Chocolates Datura

karyn1(7a)July 10, 2010

My first BOC dats are blooming. I think it might be 292-3 but can't be sure because I mixed up tags when I transplanted them. The outer skirt is dusted with purple near the edge and the inner skirt and most of the outer skirt are stark white. There appears to be more undeveloped petals in the center of the blooms. It's very pretty with a nice light scent. Sorry no pics but my camera is dead and the kids have theirs with them. I'll try to get one of their cameras when they get home.

You know we are clamoring for photos! I love the name - I was expecting to read they are cocoa colored!

I have no idea how to send a pic from my phone anywhere. I'd have to ask the kids and when they get home I could just use one of their cameras. BOC dats are Jack's hybrids that he offered earlier in the season. A number of us bought seeds so I assume that there should be quite a few of us with blooms by now.

Excellent Karyn!!!
Sounds like you've got one that I haven't had yet. All of the ones so far this year from my test plantings have been very similar to past years flowers. As a matter of fact, many have been very plain and closely resemble regular purple metels with slight variations. I was beginning to think that they may have started to revert. Really glad to read your description. Can't wait for pics!
Regards,
Jack

Unfortunately the heat got to the blooms already but I have more buds that will open soon and my new camera should be here soon as well.

Jack I'm happy to send you some of the seeds from this variety if you want them. I assume that I'll get pods. I'll know within the next couple days when the flower drops.

You are right about that - if you don't get a pic in the morning, they get crummy pretty quickly in this heat. There will be more!

This is a bloom from a different plant but it's very similar to the first two. It's just more of a yellowish color with a bit less sprinkling of purple. it has a nice fragrance.

Jack, I received the new seeds. I retired in May, and have been gone since June 8th. I will plant them, but the numbers you sent to me, 140-1, 146-7, and 162-3 only one is in the picture, I have no idea what colors they are, I sure hope one has the mauve tones, like the first numbers I received. I will plant them today. I just got home yesterday. I spent 1 week in Florida, and then went to Rockport for 4 weeks. I had to wait and plant them, since I would not be here to water the seeds. Thanks Jack, Barbra

I have to post pics from a couple others. They are the whiter blooms. One has more purple and the other about the same amount. It would be nice if there's a mauve tinted one in the bunch. I still have about a dozen more that haven't bloomed.

Barbra - I sent replacement seeds that had really good germination rates here. Chances are fairly good that you will get some mauve tones - good luck with these!

Karyn, very nice - my favorites are the yellows and whites that come out with just a little of the purple. Can't wait to see more!

Jack
