    This looks like a Lavendar double angel trumpet flower. Compare to this link: http://www.directgardening.com/ProductImage.asp?pid=7791
    There are also some good pictures of this on the weather underground site at this rather long link

    This plant is frost tender.
    I’ve gotten additional years out of this datura by potting it up and bringing it indoors for the winter, but it’s not an easy plant to transplant.

    The seeds do not germinate well for me, and the seed companies send very few when we purchase them… if we can keep the plant alive long enough to get some blooms, it will produce a ton of seeds. I’ve found that it blooms prolifically on it’s second year.

    these are a sun–> part shade plant. need a significant amount of water during the hotter months or else the leaves wilt.

    i have similar plants and overwinter indoors (in a cat- free room, since they are somewhat poisonous to pets,) but my neighbor will cut them back and heavily mulch, and they always survive the winter.
