Marshmallow Sunset Angel's Trumpet (Double White w/ Orange)

Brugmansia x cubensis 'Marshmallow Sunset'

Solanaceae

Marshmallow Sunset Angel's Trumpet (Double White w/ Orange)

Marshmallow Sunset Angel's Trumpet produces large double, triple, or more creamy white, fragrant trumpets whose skirts darken through yellow to orange. This easy to grow double flowers even at a young age and over an exceptionally long period making this is a choice container specimen or add it to a tropical garden in areas where it is winter hardy. The creamy trumpets are most fragrant at night but it is still noticeable by morning. A great choice for a Moon Moth garden. Angel's Trumpets are fast growing tropical shrubs that act-like die-back perennials in the northern parts of their range but readily return from the roots in spring. Sure to attract hummingbird moths.

Angel's Trumpets, Brugmansia in this case, can develop into small trees in their native habitat but in garden settings are generally seen as medium to large shrubs. Their large hanging trumpet shaped flowers release their heady fragrance most readily in the evenings and at night to help the moths and other creatures that might pollinate them locate them in the dark. Most cultivars are root hardy once they become well established in the landscape but should be provided a winter mulch for added protection but can then often tolerate temperatures into the teens and will return from the roots once temperatures warm in the spring. Full sun is preferred for the best growth and flowering but as long as they receive 6-8 hours a day they seem to do just fine and midday or afternoon shade is often desirable in hot summer climates.
