The lovely Angel Trumpet

Brugmansia Insignis Pink

always with flowers



brugmansia Insignis Pink


I have several Brugmansias in my garden, but none can compare with this one.  Carefree, easy, fast growing fragrant, and ever-blooming. The only time I want to trim it back is after a freeze, since the rest of the year it is covered with flowers.

A gardening friend gave me a cutting saying 'just stick it in the ground and it will grow' and sure thing, it started growing and never stopped since.

my favorite Angel Trumpet


Here in Avalon Park, Orlando FL,  it got some frost damage at 26F, but I am sure it is hardy to even colder temperatures. It does not like the full Florida sun, but morning or afternoon sun is necessary for flowering. This plant grows in sandy soil (in my friend's garden) to clay soil here in Myrtle Glen.

  5. Oh, so pretty! I have a pink brug. The ones outside are toast. I potted one and brought inside; it has no buds. Yet.
