Belle Blanche Datura

Dramatic in garden beds and large containers, Belle Blanche has glistening white, trumpet-shaped flowers. Perfect for midnight moon gardens, its flowers open at twilight and exude a heady lemon-cream fragrance, lasting for just a day. Take care, it is poisonous, so be aware when planting near curious children and pets, and throw felled foliage and spent flowers away; do not add them to your compost pile. It is best treated as an annual. HZ: 9-10.
