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.
Daybreak is a quick, bushy, upright grower that will reach a mature height of between 8 to 12 feet fairly quickly, depending on the climate and conditions. It was registered by Susan French in 2003, the parents are not noted in the registration.
The flowers of Daybreak are large and somewhat similar to Ecuador Pink in that they are big, solid colored (but in lemon yellow rather than pink), recurved with attractive long whiskers and hang at about a 15 to 25 degree angle rather than hanging vertically. Daybreak has a light citrus like scent.
Plan to allow a few seasons for this one to reach it's full blooming potential. When fully mature, it's nothing short of spectacular.

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
Caution: All parts of the Brugmansia are considered toxic.
