General Information

  • Instruction By Steve Brigham
    Notes In coastal Southern California, Angel's Trumpets are large, fast-growing evergreen shrubs which bloom heavily in cycles throughout the year (the only exceptions are the various types of Brugmansia sanguinea, which do not bloom well in warm weather). Grow Angel's Trumpets in a wind-protected spot -- full sun is fine near the coast, but partial shade is best in warmer areas a few miles inland. Keep Angel's Trumpets well-fed and watered, and you'll have better bloom and fewer problems with insect pests. Remember that all parts of these plants are poisonous.
