Brugmansia Plants or Angel Trumpets (Delivery Apr to Sept 2013)
Tropical Brugmansia plants by mail order from JungleGardens, these beautiful plants originate from South America a shrubby tree like plant capable of achieving 30ft in the wild, the genus is quite confusing but basically falls into two groups, Aurea that includes aurea, suaveolens, versicolor and candida. The other group is under Arborea that appreciate cooler conditions and includes arborea, sanguinea, flava and vulcanicola. Brugmansia are large shrubs which take some light frosts (-5C) and if protected with straw or similar material can tolerate even lower if cut back to a foot or so high and allowed to regrow after winter has passed. Alternatively keep in a cold greenhouse over winter. From my own experience light pruning and not allowing the plants to become pot bound will encourage a more shrubby habit and the plant will flower earlier and more profusely. PLEASE NOTE ALL OF THE HYBRID BRUGMANSIAS ARE SCENTED the only ones not scented are sanguinea and volcanicola species.
