Angel Trumpet

My Angel Trumpet finally decided to bloom after many years.  I remembered it being a different color, but the bud was yellow.

It finally matured some more and my memory proved to be correct.

Angel Trumpet or Brugmanis is part of the Nightshade family.  All parts of it is toxic and is also call the Trumpet of Death.  It is a plant that shouldn’t be grown in a garden with children or pets.  I waited many years before planting mine.

I thought that was that and was happy with just two blooms.  Days later more buds appeared for a beautiful display.

    I’d never seen this color until last week, when I came across one in someone’s back yard. It’s beautiful, indeed. I thought they always were white, so I was quite surprised to see the first one, and now you’ve doubled m pleasure!

    I didn’t know that these came in pink. I’ve only seen whiteish ones, but yours is a much prettier colour. Your patience has been rewarded!

    The illustration in the Sunset – Western Garden Book is from the garden of my colleague in the Los Angeles region. I grow that rich yellow cultivar, ‘Charles Grimaldi’ here, as well as a pink, pale orange and white, all with single flowers. I might grow a double white next year only because it is so nicely fragrant, although I am not so keen on the double flowers.
