We have grown angel trumpets now for over 20 years. Our first one my husband got when he was in Horticulture class in high school from his teacher. We love these trees they’re beautiful the flowers are very fragrant and bats love them. Large upside down hanging flowers that have a ginger, citrus fragrance. Our very first angel trumpet was a white variety this one particularly is peach in color. They also have them in yellow, pink, red, purple with white. In the summertime we bring our tropicals such as this angel trumpet outside for the summertime. In the winter we bring them back inside the house and put them down in the basement under the grow lights. The angel trumpets grow rather large and require a large pot, this one particularly is 25 or 30 inch pot. They are very temperamental and susceptible to aphids, white flies, spider mites, and other pests. You must be willing to spray to get rid of the pests that they get or find some natural predators to place on the plant like praying mantis, wasps, ladybugs 🐞 Angel Trumpets are one of our favorite and we definitely recommend people try them out 🌸
