Datura ID

Hope this is the proper forum for this question. I'm looking for the datura that grows approx 4-5 ft tall and wide, with large beautiful pure white flowers with a wafting perfume. I had this plant from a nursery some years back, and I saved some of the spiny seed pods. At the same time I exchanged datura seeds with someone on Garden Web. When I planted seeds, only the smaller, weedy, reseeding datura came up, and it has spread freely throughout my yard. Can anyone identify the taller datura for me? Looking thru J.L. Hudson's seed catalogue, I cannot find a tall datura, altho from its description datura inoxia sounds like it might be the one I'm looking for. The one I had was not weedy, but rather seemed to be a specally-cultivated garden plant. I would appreciate any suggestions, as I really want to have this plant again.

Yes you are right, it was probably datura inoxia.
Hope you can find some seeds!

Thx. I'm placing my J.L. Hudson order today and will order the inoxia. Do you want seeds in the fall?
