Yup...its Datura evening fragrance, seeds were originally sent to me by Izhar bhai some years ago, thanks to him i have been able to save enough seeds from my plants for members. Fragrance is unique, close to musky after shave gel :D

Lovely Umar Bhai.

Salvia Horminum indeed turned out to be disappointment. Foliage is growing phase was attractive and i was hoping brackets to more colorful and long. Maybe growing failure.

I must mention that beside T & M seeds, my experience with seeds of distinction was very good, all the seeds had satisfactory results and turned out to be authentic as per pictures. For instances poppy falling in love, Nicotania tinker bell, Scabiosa black knight, Gaillardia Scarlet Plume, Nasturitum caribean and linum Charmer. I would recommend this site.

Peonies continued. Peony/somniferum poppies though very showy as compared to roheas are very much susceptible to drainage and fungus issues. I would recommend that they should have extremely fast draining soil. Rains harm them as well as heat. If you are planting them in open, becareful as people can object as it is from same group as opium poppy.

Gaillardia Scarlet Plume, Gaillardia is very heat hardy and can be used for summer color when everything else fails. and the best thing they come true from seed.
