If these passionflower produced fruits then i can share their seeds too...
Well cuttings of honey fragrant lantana i would love to have once the rains hit in. Right now the dry heat of 45C is killing everything.

Datura meteloid 'Evening Fragrance', the seeds were initially bought from Thompson and Morgan (UK). These are not regular wild daturas, the blooms are very large and fragrant..

Hi every one.yes Izhar these are not the wild type.the plants are dwarf & compact.the flowers are metallic white am o right.Khan sb Datura Metal is flowering like crazy.i love the double blooms which look like double grandiflrora petunias.i think you may have fertilized it too much with Nitrogen based fertilizer.
