Product Details

Datura metel 'Belle Blanche' is a particularly fine variety of Angel's Trumpet with blue-green leaves and 8" long glistening white, upward-facing trumpet flowers that carry a sweet perfume, redolent of Honeysuckle and especially strong at night. 'Belle Blanche' ultimately reaches 3' tall, adding a tropical mystique in containers or a highlight in any garden. All parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested.

Datura is a genus of over a dozen annual and perennial species. We offer a species (Datura metel) from southwestern China with large, trumpet-like flowers that produce a fragrance, especially strong at night. Grow in average to humus-rich, well-drained soil. All parts of these plants are poisonous if ingested.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

I've ordered from White Flower Farm for years and have always been happy with them. This time, however, there is a big difference. I ordered four Datura. They were shipped on a Friday. I did not receive them until Tuesday and I know they had to have been kept in some type of warehouse during the weekend because when I finally got them they were dead.... I am completely disgusted with this whole process. I see they are now sold out. I want a REFUND!!!

no fragrance! so disappointed!

Only one BIG disappointment: very little to no fragrance. Vigorous growth, lots of blooms. But one of the biggest reasons I planted it in a container on my patio next to the door was to enjoy fragrance. Planted from WFF seedlings earlier this Spring. Does anyone know: as it matures will I get more fragrance?

Before moving to GA, I lived in Southern NJ. I planted this in an outside planter facing N/NW. It received minimal sunlight but succeeded in blooming profusely and rebloomed the following year. I was repeated asked for seeds which I was happy to share. I've heard from old neighbors who tell me that the plants continue to bloom every year. The blooms are lovely and occur in the early evening. Can't wait to start them here in GA.

Is datura safe to grow

This plant is vigorous and showy. White blooms glow at dusk. I am, however, concerned about toxicity. Your growing guide says no part of plant is to be consumed. Other sites, calling this jimson weed, describe it as noxious, invasive, extremely toxic. Is this a more benign variety? How do I safely dispose of it in the fall?

Latin Name Pronunciation: da-tour-uh   

A genus of over a dozen annual and perennial species. We offer a species (Datura metel) from southwestern China with large, trumpet-like flowers that produce a sweet perfume, redolent of Honeysuckle, that's especially strong at night.

Plant in full sun in average, well-drained garden soil. Excellent in mixed borders, moon gardens, and containers. Can be overwintered by potting up, and keeping in a cool, dim area, watering lightly as needed; cut back to soil level in early spring, and bring to a warm, sunny window to allow growth to start. Plants are hardy in Zones 6-10.
