#11 'Box of Chocolates' Datura from Blicon

ruth_ann(Z5 Ont.Can.)August 20, 2010

Here is the first bloom from #11 of Jack's seeds.

It has very dark purple markings, less mottled and darker than 152-3. The face has a better, cleaner look, it doesn't look 'dirty' like I found 152-3 to look.

Very nice. What I think was my #142-3 looks very similar to that one but the outside of the bloom had more purple. Almost like a regular metel. My 292-3 and 169-70 were either mainly yellow or white with purple mottling. The yellow had the "dirty" appearance that you mentioned but I really like the white with purple speckles. Only a few have sent out multiple blooms so far.

How exciting for all the folks who got Jack's seeds. Some of the seedlings are just wonderful!
Looks like lots of fun seeing what your next "chocolate" is!
