Brugmansia (Angel's Trumpet)

Question:

Do you happen to know the name of this plant? Common and/or scientific would be great. However, I'll take whatever you can give me.

Answer:

James,

This is a Brugmansia. When looking for information on it, you may also see it referenced under its former name, Datura-commonly known as Angel's Trumpet. These beauties grow quite large and make wonderful outdoor patio plants or focal points for large, indoor rooms, but they do need a fair amount of care. In the winter, they need a well-lit room with a minimum temperature of 45ºF. They will also appreciate an occasional misting. In the summer, give them plenty of water, fertilize them regularly and place them in a location with a lot of light-preferably outdoors. Growing them in a container set on casters makes moving them much easier. After they flower, pruning them back hard will help keep their growth in check. Keep all parts of this plant away from children and pets (including the seeds and sap) as all parts are poisonous. Propagation is generally easiest through cuttings.

Gabriel's Trumpet is what I've always called it & several folks I know that have them. I've seen them in several different colors, including white, yellow, peach & the pink looking that you have.
