8 Inch Pots -

One (1) large, mature, well rooted, well established plant ready to be set out into the landscape within the recommended USDA Zone range.  The plant is growing and will be shipped in a 8 inch diameter plastic pot.  The plant will be a minimum of about 24 inches tall and unlikely to have bloom or bud at the time of shipping.

Brugmansias are large semi tropical tree like shrubs that are native to South America.  The common name Angels Trumpet comes from the large elongated trumpet shaped flowers that cover the plant several times yearly, and most are intensely fragrant at night.

There are few plants that offer the uniqueness, beauty and fragrance of Brugmansias or Angels Trumpets with such little gardening effort.

There are hundreds of cultivars and hybrids with more being added every year.

Most Brugmansias will reach a mature height of around 10 ft to 12 ft tall with equal or larger spreads and generally grow as large multi trunked and branched large tree-like shrubs. 

All Brugmansias bloom in somewhat unpredictable cycles throughout the warm season.  The unique and powerful fragrance that wafts through the night air from the large, upside down hanging, trumpet shaped flowers is powerful attractant for large Luna and Gypsy Moths and nights, as well as Hummingbirds and other birds and insects that feed on nectar.

These unusual, unique and showy plants make great additions to any garden.  Place them strategically near frequently used entrances, exits or windows,  to enhance enjoying the fragrance and the beautiful view, or near the pool or patio to add an extra level of enjoyment to outdoor use of the areas.

Brugmansias are semi tropical and need cold protection from temperatures below 32°F.   Very mature, well established plants will frequently freeze down to the roots and resprout in the spring in Zones 9 and 8B.  However a severe prolonged cold snap can be fatal.

Shredded White (also sold as Fantasy) is a very unique and interesting serendipitously discovered Brugmansia candida hybrid.  Bruce Pearson of Tropical World de las Flores in Mexico is credited with the discovery and introduction of this unusual and highly sought after form. 

The slightly green toned, stark white flowers are made of up of several distinctly separated large, ruffled, single petals that fall from a single sepal, ending in sharp pointed short whiskers, and punctuated by individual,  long, dangling, stamens tipped with creamy yellow pollen pads.  The flowers hang upside down at a near 90º angle. The bloom form is sometimes called a 'twisted double', but that is a bit of a misnomer, as each layer is a large separate petal about 6 to 8 inches long and 4 to 5 inches wide.  The plant is a somewhat shorter grower with a maximum height of 5 to 8 feet, depending on climate, and is a prolific and reliable warm season bloomer.   The flowers have a light, clean, soap like scent.

Brugamansias can be also be grown in large garden pots indefinitely.

For the best results with Brugmansia Angels Trumpet:

Large, mature plants can be set out directly into the landscape.  Here are a few hints for successful growing within the recommended Zone Range, which is generally considered to be 9, 10, 11 although some sources note that well established plants often freeze to the ground and resprout in colder zones. 

Angels Trumpets can be successfully wintered over indoors with good care and attention.

  • Plant in well draining, fertile soil
  • Locate in lightly dappled shade
  • Prune lightly and often for shape when young.
