I thought it was pretty cool when the first purple Daturas were developed from a genus of mostly white flowering plants. But then I was quite amazed when the breeders developed these exotic looking yellow ones. Ballerina Yellow has ruffled blooms with extra petals. On the same plant, you can have single, double and even a few triple-petaled flowers in trumpets that are 6-8″ long. The color is sort of a soft lemon yellow. Daturas are toxic, so keep children and pets from nibbling on them. We love growing them in containers to show off their cool architecture and season-long flower display.
