Re: Plant Datura, or Nicotiana Seeds or not?

I grow both every year. They don't get on the Nicotiana at all even though it's loaded with nectar to the point the whole flower is sticky. I've seen them all over the Datura even before the flower opens. They love it.
They also love our white Crape Myrtle. We've even caught several swarms out of it. We have a red Crape Myrtle that pretty much gets ignored.

The Nicotiana I grow isn't the regular tobacco. It's called flowering tobacco. Actually it's called "Only the Lonely".
