Brugmansias are large, fast growing evergreen shrubs that come to us from Central and South America. They can reach heights of eighteen feet. They are cultivated for their large, usually scented, pendant, tubular or trumpet shaped flowers borne from early spring to late fall. The leaves are alternate, simple, often toothed, and sometimes lobed.

Angel Trumpet prefers a warm to hot climate and a light,
fertile, well-drained soil. They are best grown as small trees. When young, they can be shaped into a single trunk or they can be kept trimmed as dense, rounded shrubs. Keep well-watered during the growing season.

In very hot climates, brugmansia should be located in a site that receives plenty of light but be out of direct sunlight during the extreme heat of the day. 

Angel's trumpets need regular, large quantities of fertilizer if they are to blossom to their full capacity. 15 percent nitrogen, 5-10 percent phosphate and 10-15 percent potassium is recommended. Fertilize once or twice a week. Brugmansia that are going to over winter outside do not need any fertilizer after August.

In zones below 7 or 8, brugmansia should be in a protected location. When left in the ground in the warmer zones, they generally will die back, but spring back from the roots in the spring. Do not cut off the frozen/dead trunk until all danger of frost has passed.
