The Q&A Archives: Lavender Datura

Question: I have two Lavender Daturas in separate pots outside. Should I plant them in the ground after they flower and mulch well; or should I bring them in my home to survive until next Spring? Thank you Diane Pallecone

Answer: Aren't they wonderful! The ornamental daturas (sometimes called Brugmansia) are not at all winter hardy and so you will have to bring them inside one way or another. As an alternative to bringing in the large pots if they are huge, take cuttings now to root and then hold over the smaller plants to winter indoors. Good luck with your daturas!
