Brugmansias are best grown from cuttings. Each seed can produce a completely new plant. If you don't care about that, look for seeds, but be aware that many people will sell you seeds for datura and call them angel's trumpet.
If you want to buy plants, I have purchased some from www.worldofbrugmansia.com
. I met the owner and he lives in Winston-Salem. He sells online.
But really, if you want any of the plants I have shown you above, let me know. I'll be taking cuttings in October and should have lots to share. Each cutting is only a foot long and all 6 of my large plants are over 5' this year.
If you want the white datura, it's easily grown from seed. There's a purple datura too, but not brugmansia.
You can ebay too, but be wary. People will sell things and will often mislabel them or deceive you outright.
correction, I have met one of the growers from world of brugmansia, Eddie.
