Brugmansia versicolor (Angel's Trumpet)

Arborescent Angel's Trumpet, Arborescent Angel's Tears, Brugmansia arborea


Brugmansia versicolor (Angel's Trumpet) is a vigorous tropical shrub or small tree laden with exceptionally large, pendulous, trumpet-shaped, peachy-apricot flowers, 15 in. long (37 cm). Blooming from midsummer to fall, they hang straight down from the branches and literally cover the plant. The blossoms start out creamy-white, and after a day or so they turn a lovely salmon-peach color. Sparkling against the foliage of large, smooth leaves, the flowers emit a wonderful fragrance for hundreds of feet around - especially in the evening. This flowering shrub adds a brilliant accent to any garden.

  • Grows up to 10-15 ft. tall and wide (300-450 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.
  • All parts are highly toxic if ingested and sap may be an irritant
  • Native to Ecuador.
