Angel’s Trumpet in Full Bloom

from the Logee's growers

Angel’s Trumpet in Full Bloom

By Laurelynn Martin and Byron Martin


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 plants will reward you time and again. Here are pictures of three varieties that are in full bloom.


 Angel’s Trumpet ‘Audrey Lea’ 


 

 

This Sommer’s hybrid has stunning double flowers ranging in color from watermelon to coral and pink. As the flowers mature, the ends roll up making the fancy tails more visible on the double skirts at the bottom of the blooms.  The big flowers measure about 12” long x 5” wide and they have an intense nighttime fragrance. 

 



 

Brugmansia ‘Angel’s Blushing Beauty’


   


Another variety of Angel’s Trumpet. It is another Byron Martin hybrid called Brugmansia ‘Angel’s Blushing Beauty’. I turned the pot for another view of this 2 year-old specimen. Notice the lovely soft pink blooms that cascade in layers of color. 




 

Brugmansia ‘Angel’s Summer Dream’


 

 

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