Ummm...pardon me but....I do believe you have the name wrong

Datura is Devils Trumpet..it looks up at heaven.

Brugmansia is Angels Trumpet...it looks down. 

Brugmansia is closely related to Datura.  Angel Trumpets are not as
posionous as Devil's Trumpets.  They are both members of the
Solanaceae, or potato family.



The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth.
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.
               Dorothy Frances Gurney
