Botanical Name

BRUGMANSIA 'Frosty Pink'

Plant Common Name

Angel's Trumpet, Brugmansia, Frosty Pink Angel's Brugmansia

General Description

The dramatic, pale coral pink and white blooms of ‘Frosty Pink’ make this tropical perennial a winner in southerly gardens and container plantings. This angel’s trumpet is a highly ornamental evergreen shrub to small tree. Throughout the season it produces huge, pendulous, trumpet-shaped blooms that are white edged in pink. These are fragrant, attract moths and contrast nicely with its large soft green leaves.

Heat, humidity and sun-loving, angel’s trumpet grows best in fertile, organic-rich soil with good drainage and requires regular watering. It will die back to the roots in mild winter regions that have frosts and some subfreezing temperatures and resprouts rather late in spring once soil is quite warm. Where not root hardy, it may be planted as an annual or taken inside to overwinter. Use it as a container specimen or tall accent or small tree in the tropical border.
