Brugmansia is known for its huge, fragrant, pendent flowers and originates from South America. When people first encounter the angel trumpet usually their jaws drop in awe of the exotic 10 inch long flowers and powerful lemon scent.
They are a perennial member of the Solanaceae (Calibrachoa). The foliage is highly poisonous which makes the plants deer-resistant.
Angel's Trumpets are one of Mother Nature's most breathtaking plants. You can almost watch them grow as they rapidly form three-foot-tall bushes. Then the real show begins. Each plant can have dozens, even hundreds, of blossoms at once.
Best of all, they continue blooming all the way through frost! This Yellow variety has extremely large single blossoms that measure up to twenty inches long. Grows 6-8 feet tall!
Extremely fragrant, especially in the evening. Angel's Trumpets are excellent container plants that make an impressive display for your deck or patio. These tropical beauties thrive in bright sunlight during the dog days of summer; just make sure to give them plenty of water.
