An unusually colored Angel's Trumpet producing large, pale trumpets that deepen to a darker peachy pink. Amber Rose is an exceptionally fragrant Angel's Trumpet whose heady perfume still lingers in the mornings. It appears to flower quite freely and in good numbers even in containers. 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. They also make easy to enjoy container plants that can be overwintered indoors.

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.

Angel's Trumpets are rarely called Wedding Bell's in today's literature but you can still find it occasionally and we think it is an appropriate common name that helps to distinguish the Brugmansia from the often annual Datura species. In all honesty the Datura can produce flowers that point up, sideways, or even downward and thus causing confusion for the novice gardener. For a reference using this common name applied to B. arborea see Success With Flowers, A Floral Magazine, Volumes 9-10 in the section titled "Brugmansia Arborea” on page 73, published by the Dingee and Conard Company in 1898.
