BRUGMANSIA 'Peaches and Cream'

James Burghardt

Family

Solanaceae

Botanical Name

BRUGMANSIA 'Peaches and Cream'

Plant Common Name

Angel's Trumpet, Brugmansia, Peaches and Cream Brugmansia

General Description

Beautifully variegated foliage and peachy pendulous flowers distinguish ‘Peaches and Cream.’ 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 soft apricot. These are fragrant, attract moths and contrast nicely with its large medium green leaves edged in cream.

Heat, humidity and sun-loving, angel’s trumpet grows best in fertile, organic-rich soil with good drainage and requires regular watering. It grows well in containers, and looks super in foundation plantings of mixed borders. Frosts and moderate subfreezing winter temperatures will kill the plant back to the roots, from which it resprouts late in spring when soils have warmed considerably. Where not root hardy, it should be planted as an annual or taken inside to overwinter. In very hot summer regions partial shade exposures are likely best.
