Brugmansia

Angel's Trumpet

The showy angel's trumpets, from Central and South America, are subtropical evergreen shrubs in the Solanaceae family with huge pendant trumpet-shaped flowers. They are placed in the genus Brugmansia (as opposed to Datura, which includes the perennial jimson weed).

Long cultivated by South American natives, brugmansias are fast growing plants that need a large space and a large container. Many cultivated species and hybrids grow at high elevations in the Andes, so (like fuchsias) they do not like warm nighttime temperatures.

Brugmansias are among the most colorful and largest flowering plants in our collection, with flowers 6 to 15 inches in length in white, yellow, orange, apricot and pink. They emit a powerful fragrance beginning at dusk with flowers covering the plant in cycles throughout the year.

Outdoors, frost will damage their leaves but the plants will recover from 25F and regrow quickly. Hard pruning to control size and shape is recommended and will bring a flush of new growth and heavy bloom on well-fertilized plants. Shipped in 2¾ inch pots.

To be able to list cultivars alphabetically, we have not listed the species parentage in the plant names. These are listed in the description, if known. The new designation cubensis refers to a combination of all three species, B. aurea, B. suaveolens, and B. versicolor, in the cultivar's breeding.
