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.

Feathery-fine ferns, Refresh your summer border, Summer Shipping!

Characterized by delicate-looking fronds...

the deer-proof ferns, which are featured above, unfurl spritely new fiddleheads every spring. All are deciduous save for the lustrous Polystichum, otherwise known as Tassel Fern. Varying shades of green, metallic silver, russet, bronze and burgundy imbue their artful foliage. Second-to-none for shady alcoves, these easy-care perennials can be planted as specimens or grouped in shade gardens, mixed borders and woodland settings. Their filigree-fine features lend sophisticated accents to patio containers or cut arrangements. Ferns will flourish in cool , well-drained moist nooks enriched with compost or well-rotted manure.  

Refresh your summer plantings...

During the month of July, gardeners sometimes wonder how they can perk up their summer gardens. Sunshine-hued blooms, golden leaves and crisp white flowers lend lively accents. They can be sprinkled amid a mixed border, perennial bed or other plantings, melding well with flowers that include a broad color spectrum from blue-violet to purple and lilac, as well as clear pink and darker rose hues.  

Apart from adding more plants, there are a few simple maintenance techniques that will help your garden maintain a fresh appearance during the summer. The addition of a chipped-bark mulch or well-rotted compost early in the season, not only reduces water requirements throughout the warmer months, but promotes vigorous growth and peppy-looking foliage. Many perennials, such as Nepetas and Geraniums, can be trimmed in June or July. This midseason cut back ensures a tidy stature and more blooms, often all the way ‘til frost.

We hope some of the plants in this newsletter spark some interest and beckon you to dig them into that empty spot in your garden.
