purple people eater seeds

Alas, your purple people eater angel trumpet is not a brugmansia, but a datura. I have grown them here in zone 5, Ontario with good results. You have to treat them as an annual though. Plant the seeds and step back, . if they germinate. Sometimes they are difficult to get going, but if they do, you’ll enjoy them. Not much of a scent though, and I am a scent person. LOL

Purple people eaters trumpets

I saw in the Michigan Bulb company catalog a angel trumpet plant called the Purple people eater angel trumpet. It says it is gargantuan, purple-white fragrant flowers that reach 5′ tall and flowers are 8″ long. I want to buy some and wonder if anyone has seen them and if they like them. Also has anyone ordered from that company any positives or negatives? Thanks Christine

Whatever you do don’t buy from Michigan Bulb Co. They are a part of Direct Gardening or visa versa and are probably one of the worst mail order companies around.

I have no problem growing daturas. I soak the seeds overnight and plant them just under the soil. I usually start some early inside with bottom heat. My double daturas don’t get as big as my singles, certainly not 5′, but maybe 3′. I’ve never noticed a scent from any of my doubles but some of the singles smell nice. Christine send me an email, there’s no way to contact you on your member page.
