B. suaveolens 'pink' (USDA 9b - 11)
Brugmansia suaveolens 'pink' plant. Fragrant at night.
Brugmansia sold well rooted in a 11cm pot at a height of 25-35cm secured in a pre-made bespoke box. The plant is secured and anchored in the box, labeled and the pot is presented in a natural hessian bag. A perfect show case specimen for summer garden events or as a patio pot plant specimen.
The flowers are remarkably beautiful, sweetly fragrant, about 20-30 cm long and shaped like trumpets. The corolla has five points that are slightly recurved. The flowers are pink and are pendulous, hanging almost straight down.Brugmansia Suaveolens Grows to a semi-woody shrub or small tree that gets to 1.8-4.6 m high, usually with a many-branched single trunk.This Angel Trumpet was originally endemic to the coastal rainforests of south-east Brazil, where it grows below 1,000 m (3,300 ft) along river banks and forest edges with warm temperatures, high humidity, and heavy rainfall.
Growing conditions: Like other large-leaved, fast-growing plants, they appreciate a little protection from the wind, as well as from the hottest afternoon sun. They like organically rich soil, frequent water, and heavy fertilizer when in full growth. In northern climates they are often grown out in large containers and wintered over in non-freezing garages, conservatories, greenhouses or sheds. Avoid planting in the ground in the UK as it would need to be transplanted out for winter protection.
Flowers: June to October
Position: Part-Shade to avoid drying out
Temperature: 4C - 30C
Water: Kept in moist well drained soil, do not allow to fully dry out.
Feeding: High Potash feed every other day in the growing season (Spring to Autumn)
Pot into a rich compost potting media and position in a sunny spot (part-shade is best). Water freely from spring to autumn and apply a high potash feed frequently (every other day if possible).
During winter, water sparingly and ensure there is a minimum night temperature of 2-3 °C. You can repot, if necessary, in early spring once growth recommences. When it is impractical to increase the pot size, top dress annually by removing a 5-10cm (2-4in) layer of compost and replacing with fresh compost.
