Gardening Georgia O'Keefe Style

We bought this Sacred Datura up at Theodore Payne.

The  overall plant is not very big, but every other night or so, it puts out a single bloom that lasts a day.  Given the plant's size, I'm really surprised at the number of flowers it's produced.

They are supposed to smell amazing, but the scent is so faint from a single bloom that I can't say for sure that is true.

Rob says he can't wait to see what kind of insect pollinates these.
