Trumpeting in the Morning

Morning is a favorite time to survey my garden, especially when I’m greeted with new blooms.

Last year my Angel Trumpet, Brugmansia, finally put out a few flowers and this year it is covered with them.

The 10 inch bell-shaped flowers are stunning.  Just remember it is a poisonous beauty that is only to be admired.

    No frost yet in central PA!! Flowers are still blooming butterflies and robins are still in the area.

  2. Beautiful, indeed. And something just loves their nectar and is happy not to share.

    I’ve seen these in yellow at Maas’s nursery, and there are a few very small ones (also yellow) that have been planted where I most often work. They’re such a beautiful flower. I heard the name for some time before I saw one bloom, but when I saw the flowers, I hardly could believe it.

    My white ones are finally starting to bloom, though I’ve had pink on and off all summer.

  5. I grew Brugmansia when I lived in Mississippi and they were AWESOME! On a still evening their scent filled the back yard.

    Angel Trumpet Brugmansia is beautiful. You can raise some lovely plants where you live.

    There are four cultivars here, but the only pink has weirdly angular stems. The blooms are great, but the stems are awkward. White is my favorite, but the foliage is not as pretty. There is no perfection, but they are all appealing.
