That Brugmansia is not a Datura and it is fine, at the moment, on the front porch of the second entry - a mini deck with rail all the way around. (The one I went out on last spring and the door closed and locked and I had to get a neighbor to come in and let me out.)It dropped a lot of flowers while I was away and gobbled up most of a bucket of water! So, lots of dead flowers to pick up - good bending over exercise. I think they, like the hibiscus in our BR, only last a day. The H needs lots of feeding before it will have many flowers; it was in sorry shape when I got it for $5! Having listened to the entire 58 min youtube and looked at a couple more, I feel prepared to deal with the beast - about 4 feet high and five wide.
