B. sanguinea (USDA 9a - 11)
Brugmansia sanguinea or Scarlet Angel’s Trumpet bears striking unscented flowers. The red/orange flowers are remarkably beautiful about 20-30 cm long and shaped like trumpets. The corolla has five points that are slightly recurved. The flowers are red/orange and are pendulous, hanging almost straight down.
Growing to a semi-woody shrub or small tree that gets to 1.8-4.6 m high, usually with a many-branched single trunk. Its pendulous trumpet-shaped flowers are highly distinctive. Flowers: October to May Brugmansia sold well rooted in a 11cm pot at a height of 25-35cm secured in a pre-made bespoke box. The plant secured and anchored in the box, labeled and the pot is presented in a natural hessian bag.
Growing conditions: This plant comes from higher elevations than typical Brugmansias, so it used to mild daytime temperatures, and nights that are cool. Temperatures above the 23°C can inhibit flowering, and the plant might decline if temperatures are consistently above 30°C, especially if nights are warm. In frost free coastal areas of the UK this can be planted in the ground when mature.
