[IGSROBIN] Thirsty San Diego Pels


Since this robin is about pelargoniums I don't want to belabor the point but
I believe that most of what were called Datura are now Brugmansia.

"It's probably Datura inoxia or D. metal.  The rootstock is hardy here in
Michigan (Zone 6) if planted in a protected spot, like against a
wall.  Definitely not a geranium, though.
