Brugmansia sanguinea
“Scarlet Angel’s Trumpet”

Brugmansia sanguinea Scarlet Angels Trumpet Brugmansia sanguinea Scarlet Angels Trumpet

The most spectacular flower display of the genus! So lucky for us, we here in Northern California’s coastal areas have the perfect climate to grow it in, as it requires cool summer and cooler nights to bloom. A small tree, 6-8' tall, it makes an extraordinary display in late Spring through Summer. Pendulous, recurved, scarlet to orange, 8", tubular "trumpets" with yellow sides are borne in abundance - up to 40 at a time. Care: Brugmansia sanguinea likes rich, moist soil. It doesn't like to dry out and will drop leaves if it does. A heavy feeder, too. Do fertilize and top dress with compost every so often.


Please note: All plant parts are poisonous.
