Thank you Anget this is in a large pot and needs to be taken in from frost free conditions you can store it in a shed or house providing you keep it dampish through over wintering it only flowers when a fork branch appears it need s feeding with tomato feed when due to flowering time.

I love the look of them but I have never been tempted to try them. Hubby would knock it over or some such bless him.

Lol Seaburngirl I gather your hubby is accient prone it would be hard to knock this one over . Watching you tube the Americans chop them right back hard and store over winter on their basements.

That is gorgeous 3d, I've never grown one either

Daughter bought one last year from one of the open gardens and managed to keep it alive over the winter. It is now flowering and having moved into her permanent home she will have more time to care for it. All parts of this are potentially poisonous so take care with small children and animals - and yourself if you are prone to nibbling things!

Thank you Lincslass I hope you try growing one. This is scrawny compared to Stan and Delonix1 on here .

Thats wonderful Honeysuckle she must live in a warm / mild part of the UK or had a mild winter as I ve had ones prior and left them out side through winter and they died. Yes the sap it releases too so make sure she does nt get any on her .

In the lockdown I found an old packet of Datura Ballerina Tutu seeds of which ten which are now growing on. This is similar isn't it 3d, so will I actually have to bring them in for winter or would a bubbled greenhouse do do you think?

Yes its an Angel Trumpet half hardy perennial. I shall look forward to seeing it when it flowers.
