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.

Our featured plant: Cercidiphyllum japonicum

Cercidiphyllum japonicum: A tree brimming with elegance....

An inhabitant of China and Japan, Cercidiphyllum japonicum usually grows as a refined multitrunked tree with a pyramidal to rounded canopy. Cloaking gracefully structured branches, the lovely somewhat heart-shaped deciduous leaves unfurl in bronzy purple tones, and later exhibit medium bluish green hues for summer. The foliar grand finale includes brilliant yellow, apricot, orange or mauve colors plus a sweet strawberry-like scent that wafts some 15 feet or further on sunny, warm fall afternoons. This easy-care tree prefers adequate moisture as well as some protection from hot scorching sun and drying winds.

Autumnal Allure...

One of the greatest joys of gardening is witnessing the changes that occur in our landscapes throughout the year, and many deciduous woody plants pretty much top the list for affording dynamic seasonal transformations, especially in autumn. Most of the trees and shrubs featured in this newsletter are renowned for both their handsome habits and prismatic fall displays. We’ve also included a few of our favorite perennials that lend late season floral or foliar intrigue.

All of us Digging Dog plant wranglers wish you Happy Digging!
