Brugmansia

Angel's Trumpet

Graceful branches and broad pale green leaves make a compact backdrop for enormous, 8 to 10 in. long, creamy white trumpets that dangle in a fanciful manner. The splendid blooms are subtly infused with chartreuse at the base and are borne in abundance, sometimes numbering as many as 50 at any given time.

Position this stellar specimen on the patio or near a path in a terra-cotta container, and you too will be bewitched by its sweet spicy nighttime perfume and dreamy essence. Indigenous to South America, this exotic-looking evergreen member of the Potato family and Brugmansia suaveolens hybrid needs winter protection at around 20 to 25° and judicious pruning to curb its vigorous growth and maintain a sophisticated shape.

Blooms July – mid-November

Size: 6' 0" – 10' 0" high x 6' 0" – 9' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 9.

Looking for Wintertime Botanical Inspiration? Our 2020 catalog is available!

Create winter intigue with decidious and evergreen shrubs or trees.

Woody plants tend to add a sense of structure and permanence to our gardens. They can be planted as specimens or in swaths. Many of them offer artful bark, branching patterns, year-round foliage, swelling buds or cold-weather blooms, promoting welcome winter allure. Please be sure to check out our on-line shrub and tree selections.

Looking for more botanical inspiration...

and who isn’t on a chilly mid-January day? I certainly was, as I strolled through the nursery and garden with a steaming mug of Oolong tea and my trusty canine companion, Boobah in tow. Almost immediately I was pleasantly surprised to spot the Hellebores. Bejeweling the winter garden, their marvelous single or double-petaled blooms yield an array of colors that include chartreuse, sparkling white, pink, smoky plum, and a rich nearly black maroon. Apart from the Hellebores, I came upon the plump berries, glistening evergreen foliage and winter flowers that are featured in this newsletter. We hope you find a healthy dose of January cheer!

All of us plant wranglers at the nursery, along with Boobah, our wee greeter and self-appointed nursery manager, and shy kitty, Parker, wish you countless happy hours digging in a garden of your own!
