Brugmansia versicolor is a perennial tree shrub that grows up to three meters in height. The flowers are large and trumpet-shaped, come in various shapes and colors, and hang straight down. The fruits are thin capsules, which also hang straight down. The leaves are oval with pointed ends. B. versicolor is easily confused with other species of Brugmansia, which has most likely led to mistakes in its identification. Since March 2014, they have been listed as Extinct in the Wild by the IUCN. Brugmansia versicolor is a bush or small tree reaching 3.0–4.9 m (10–16 ft) in height. It has an alternate insertion of elliptic/oblong leaves that are entire with smooth edges. One of the most prominent characteristics of B. versicolor is the presence of giant drooping flowers which hang upside down, which is where it gets its common name of Angel's Trumpet. The flowers are the largest of all Brugmansia at 300–510 mm (12–20 in) in length. They open first white, but then may age to turn peach/pink in colour.

  • 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)

    Potting

    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).

    Over wintering


    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.

    Brugmansia is happy to a minimum of 3 °C with no problems. In the UK overwinter in a heated greenhouse or conservatory to retain leaves and slow growth. A garage, shed or unheated greenhouse will protect the plant but it will lose its leaves and then regain them in spring. Heavy fleece will insure the plant survives the coldest parts of winter. 

    Pests

    Slugs and snails can be detered by potting grit, slug pellets or beer traps. Other bugs can be treated with garden centre pest sprays. Avoid water logged soil.

    Toxicity
    All parts are highly toxic if ingested and sap may be an irritant. Caution should be advised to buyers with adventurous pets or small children.

    Where gloves when pruning, avoid contact with sap and pollen, wash hands after gardening with Brugmansia. DO NOT INGEST IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.

    CAUTION: Never leave children or pets unsupervised around Brugmansia
