Brugmansia Angel Trumpets

 
brugmansia angel trumpets  grown in a beer barrel

Brugmansia, once known as Datura, but more commonly known as Angel Trumpets makes a gorgeous specimen plant with an exotic overpowering scent at its best on warm evenings and into the night. It enjoys the warmth of the Dundee weather.

The flowers are at their best at night, so benefit from a position beside a house or garden light.

This one is growing in a beer barrel where it gets plenty room to grow to achieve a good size but has enough root restriction to induce ample flowering.

Cuttings taken in autumn root easy and overwinter in a dryish and cool but frost free light position. They grow fast in late winter and spring to make big specimens, so need feeding and potted up frequently.
