Award-winning Brugmansia suaveolens (Snowy Angel's Trumpet) is a semi-evergreen, tropical shrub or small tree boasting huge and magnificent, pendulous trumpet-shaped, white flowers, 12 in. long (30 cm), from midsummer to fall. Sparkling against the foliage of large, oval, mid-green leaves, the flowers exude a strong fragrance in the evenings and actively open and close depending on the time of day. This flowering shrub makes a terrific accent or specimen plant.

  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
  • Grows up to 3-8 ft. tall (150-240 cm) and 2-4 ft. wide (60-90 cm).
  • A full sun lover, this plant is best grown in organically rich, moist, well-drained soils. Afternoon shade is appreciated in hot summer areas. Brugmansias are heavy feeders and need regular fertilization during the growing season to promote new growth and flowers.
  • In cool winter areas, grow outdoors in full sun after danger of frost is passed. Grow under glass in full light over winter with a minimum of 45-50°F (7-10°C). In warm winter areas, plant as a specimen. Perfect for beds and borders, Mediterranean gardens or containers.
  • Virtually disease free - watch for glasshouse red spider mite, glasshouse whitefly, thrips and mealybugs under glass.
  • Propagate by seed or semi-ripe or softwood cuttings
  • Native to Brazil.
  • All parts are highly toxic if ingested and sap may be an irritant
