Brugmansia (Hybrid)

Conestoga House has several Angel’s Trumpets, so called because of their large pendulous flowers. These small trees are native to South America. All seven species of Brugmansia that exist in the world today are extinct in the wild.

 

This amazing species is most fragrant during the evening rather than daytime and thus attracts moths for its pollination.
