a range Subtropical Plants for your Garden & Greenhouse

Exotic Earth Plants is a specialist supplier of Brugmansia plants (Angels Trumpets or formerly Datura). Our passion for growing Brugmansia is primarily due to its status on the IUCN red list as extinct in the wild. We are building an ex-situ collection to protect the species as a whole but also locate and grow wild forms of the plant. Inspired by a range of subtropical gardens and with over 10 years experience our focus is predominately on plants from South America, South Africa and Atlantic Islands. Our plants are specially selected to cope with the UK weather and with a little winter protection will bloom year on year.
We are also growing an ex-situ collection of Andean cloud forest Pleurothallid orchids, including Masdevallia and Dracula Orchids. These are available to buy and funds generated are supporting the our goal to become Patron Members of the Orchid Conservation Alliance.
When you purchase from us we are passionate about protecting these South American plant species.

We hold a private collection of Brugmansia which has been growing since 2016. The collection consists of a selection of single species and cultivated varieties of two species and three species Brugmansia. We also have several special varieties cultivated by Brugmansia Growers International members.
A goal of Exotic Earth Plants is to grow all seven single-species of Brugmansia listed as extinct in the wild by the IUCN Red List. This is harder than it seems as most varieties are not pedigree. We are also growing a selection of two-species Brugmansia and three-species Brugmansia, contributing towards an ex-situ collection to support the species as a whole. In addition, as a member of Plant Heritage we are Plant Guardians of several Brugmansia varieties and are aspiring to hold a national collection of Brugmansia. Brugmansia will be sold online in the Plant Shop and at Plant Fairs around Southwest UK. Please support EEP to promote this lost species by purchasing plants from our shop or plant fairs. Please see our Brugmansia species page for more information.
At Exotic Earth Plants we are growing an ex-situ collection of Andean cloud forest Pleurothallid orchids, primarily Masdevallia and Dracula Orchids. These are available to buy and funds generated are supporting our goal to become Patron Members of the Orchid Conservation Alliance and to protect them from becoming extinct in the wild helping OCA to buy the reserve land. This is primarily focusing on Dracula Orchids in South America. Other threatened cloud forest orchids include but not limited to Dryadella, Dichaea, Lepanthes, Porroglossum, Oncidium, Echinorhynch, Scaphosepalum, Pleurothallis. We may also look at these in the future
In addition to Brugmansia we grow a selection of other exotic & architectural plants suitable for the UK climate. Our focus is predominately on plants from South America, South Africa and Atlantic Islands. These plants may change season to season but generally include species such as Echium, Gunnera, Musa, Lampranthus and Eucomis. Please see the the Plant Shop for more details.
