New Dwarf AngelÂs Trumpet
by Charlie Nardozzi
Angels trumpet (Brugmansia) is a tropical tree that produces large, fragrant, pendulous flowers in summer. They have become especially popular for planting in containers on decks and patios. Hardy only to USDA zone 10, angel's trumpet can become huge if overwintered indoors in a greenhouse or sunroom. Also, brugmansia goes through alternating periods of vegetative growth and flowering, which reduces the floral show in summer.
Now a new dwarf brugmansia solves some of these problems. Brugmansia Inca Sun features fragrant, yellow-peach flowers that bloom continuously from old flower spurs as well as new shoots. It begins flowering when only 2 feet tall, and only grows to 4 to 6 feet tall in a container.
