One Happy Moonflower
« on: September 21, 2018, 02:50:48 pm »
a Datura seed landed in the expansion joint on my patio. this is a single plant & it's still growing. the flower only open at night. depending on the temperature they close between 7 & 10 a.m. the bees will stay out late to work the blooms. at night a lot of critters work them including sphinx/hummingbird moths.

Compare yours to mine.   :laugh:

No comparison.  It just started blooming about a week ago.
