Belonging to the Deadly Nightshade family, which also includes the tomato, Brugmansia comprises about 20 different species, nearly all of them poisonous. There are a number of cultivars, some with pink or yellow flowers. It's a showy landscape evergreen plant.
B. x Candida, (a hybrid cross between B. aurea and
B. versicolor) which in time can become a small tree, makes a striking garden ornamental with its large, white, trumpet-shaped flowers that appear in great quantities hanging like bells. The velvety, greyish-green leaves are spear-shaped and the wood is quite brittle. This is one of the longest of the Brugmansias. The more sun, the more flowers. Can be pruned into a nice small accent tree. Put it where you can enjoy the fragrance at night. Blooms on and off all year. Easy to grow. Not fussy about soil or water. Likes lots of fertilizer.
