Moonflowers - Knowledgebase Question

Where can I get the seeds for moonflowers that are not the vining variety? I used to have them in my backyard and they would reseed themselves the following year. The flowers were the same as the vining type, but the plant itself would be in the bush form.

I wonder if you're thinking of Angel's Trumpet (Datura metel)? It has white, trumpet-shaped blooms that open at night, and have a wonderful scent. It grows as a bush. To view an image, check out this page:
