Plant ID?

sunnysa(8)July 17, 2013

I received this plant at the Spring swap and planted it in a small flower bed. It's really grown. Should I move it? Can anyone ID it? I've already posted it in name that plant but no luck. It's a very flat leaf. Thanks.

It reminds me purple Datura.

Thanks, Omar. Okay... that gives me two that have said it's Datura. I'll go with that.

They grow pretty big, don't they? I'll have to move it right away.

Was that a Ballerina Purple Datura I gave you?

Daturas are related to brugs. I've seen some like 4-5' tall but most of them reach 2-3'. I've heard they respond well to fertilizers and good drainage.

Joey, did you? I brought home so many plants, I don't remember who gave it to me. If you did, thank you. I remember that you gave two plants, but I don't recall the names.

Omar, I think I've confused the two in the past. That's why I didn't think it was a Datura. I'm happy to learn what it is. Thanks.

Just remember that Daturas are highly toxic so if you have a pet that chews on plants, make sure they can't get at it.

And take care not to rub your eyes or nose after you handle the leaves. I have lots of the white one and my dog toodles around it and even under it. If I handle it I have to rinse my sinuses in a hot shower as soon as I come in.
Transplant
ASAP and keep some soil on that long root for a smooth transition.
