ANGEL'S TRUMPET SCARLET Brugmansia sanguinea
This rare Angel's Trumpet has huge scarlet blooms! Flowers continue to be produced the entire growing season.
Do you know the difference? Angel's Trumpet's (Brugmansia) are different than Datura. Angel's Trumpets grow much larger and taller, up to 10' tall or more if you have a frost-free climate. If you live in a colder climate, plants can easily be grow in pots, trimmed back heavily, and taken indoors for the winter (to the surprise of many of our US customers, we do this at our location in Canada every year!). Angel's Trumpets also have larger (huge) flowers, and the flowers hang downwards. Datura flowers are also large, typically point upwards, and plants and flowers are large, though smaller than brugmansia. Datura plants last one growing season and then are done their cycle (die). They are considered annuals.
Seeds per pack: 3
Note: These seeds and plants are toxic.
Germination: These seeds are easy to grow. Place the seeds just below the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and keep moist. Once planted, germination usually occurs in over a 4-8 week period (some seeds will appear before others). Once they begin to grow, place them in a sunny location. Brugmansia are frost tender, so do not expose them to cold. If you live in a colder region, bring plants indoors for the winter, and place in a sunny window. They overwinter well, and are easy to care for.
