Angel’s Trumpet in Full Bloom

The cooler nights and shorter days have given way to an abundance of Angel’s Trumpet Blooms at the Greenhouses. For those of you who have never grown Angel’s Trumpets (Brugmansias), these are fast growing fluted flowers that emit an intoxicating nighttime fragrance. Easy-to-grow, simply give lots of fertilizer and full sun and the blooms will reward you time and again. Here are pictures of three varieties that are in full bloom.

Angel’s Trumpet ‘Cherub’

Angel’s Trumpet ‘Cherub’ has hundreds of open flowers. The nighttime fragrance is overwhelming.

 

6 year-old specimen

This is a 6 year-old specimen. Every fall, we prune it back to a bare stem, about 3 feet high and then overwinter it in a cool greenhouse or you can overwinter an Angel’s Trumpet in a basement or a garage that doesn’t go below freezing. Water only once a month and when springtime arrives put the plant in a sunny spot and watch it sprout back to life.

Of course, our old standby Brugmansia ‘Angel’s Summer Dream’ was blooming its head off and does so most of the year.
