==[edit]

"Datura metel is a shrub-like perennial herb, commonly known as angel's trumpet, devil's trumpet, and metel. .... The plant is an annual herb growing up to 3 ft. high."

Now which is it: annual or perennial? Dawright12 (talk) 11:37, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Good question, probaby best resolved by consulting the cited reference(s). I kind of remember that some of these datura species are basically annuals, but that if they develop a good root system and the winters are mild, they will come back the next year. It's been a long time since I looked at this stuff, though. Lou Sander (talk) 02:30, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Original Research?[edit]

What is the basis for the OR tag? I'm tempted to remove it, and will do so if there's no response to this question after a reasonable time. Lou Sander (talk) 14:57, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
