Angel's Trumpet

This tropical plant flourishes in well-drained soil and can grow up to 10 feet tall.

The huge trumpet-shaped flowers and large leaves of angel's trumpet make a dramatic statement in any garden. A tropical plant that can grow up to 10 feet in one summer, this plant is great either for containers or the mixed border. White-, pink-, yellow-, peach- and purple-flowering varieties are available.

Give this plant moist, rich, well-drained soil in full sun to part or light shade. During the growing season feed every two weeks with a balanced fertilizer. Hardy to USDA Zone 7. In frost-free areas of the country--and in its native South America--angel's trumpet is a woody evergreen shrub.
