Available Sizes:

4 inch Pots -

Mature, well rooted starter size plant, growing and shipped in a 4 inch diameter plastic pot.  Plant will be a minimum of about 6 to 8 inches tall, and is unlikely to have bloom or bud at the time of shipping.

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.

Shredded White is a good choice for potted culture.

For the best results with Brugmansia Angels Trumpet:

Direct planting of 4 inch starter size plants is not recommended, so for the best results, we suggest potting into a larger pot and allowing the plant to grow a bit larger before setting it out.  When the new pot has filled with roots, 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.
  • Feed a good quality slow release plant food in the spring.
  • Protect from frost and freeze
