Brugmansia sanguinea is one of the lesser seen species, but it offers tremendous garden value. In the hills, under the shelter of a gum, mine flowers year round. The flowers are a magical mix of green, yellow and orange.
Brugmansia sanguinea ‘Orange’ is quick to establish and more frost than the Brugmansia candidas. The plants respond well to pruning, so don’t be afraid to get the shears out and shape it how you would like.
Brugmansias are commonly known as Angel’s Trumpets, for their beauty and heavenly fragrance. They have plenty of ornamental value with lush foliage and masses of highly fragrant flowers that bloom for months on end.
Brugmansias are fast growing shrubs, or small trees that bring a touch of the exotic to your garden. They will flower for most of the year in warm climates and only stop blooming in autumn and winter in cool climates.
Brugmansia are easy to grow plants and don’t require much care. They will only need pruning if they become too large for their lot, or you would like to shape them into a tree. Plant your Brugmansia in full sun to part shade in cool climates. In warmer climates, morning sun or part shade is best.
Brugmansia also grow well in pots, it’s best to choose a large container and fill it with good quality, well draining potting mix. Keep the pot moist during active growth and fertilise regularly. If you live in a cold climate, growing your Brugmansia in pots means you can easily protect them from harsh frosts as they establish. Whereever you live you may need to protect your young Brugmansia shrubs from slugs and snails. You should also keep an eye out for Aphids.
The flowers of Brugmansia are most fragrant at night; as they are pollinated by moths.
