Pink Angel's Trumpet
Gracefully spreading branches and broad dark green leaves are the backdrop for enormous, 8 to 10 in. long, softly colored trumpets that dangle in a fanciful manner. The splendid blooms are pale pink at the base, then subtly graduate to a deep salmon-pink where the floral shaft flares out. Position this stellar specimen on the patio or near a path in a terracotta container, and you too will be bewitched by its sweet floral perfume and dreamy essence.
Indigenous to South America, these exotic-looking evergreen members of the Potato family need winter protection at around 20 to 25° and judicious pruning to curb their vigorous growth and maintain a sophisticated shape.
Blooms July – mid-November.
Size: 5' 0" – 10' 0" high x 6' 0" – 8' 0" wide.
