Brugmansia suaveolens 'Single White' (White Angel's Trumpet) - An evergreen large shrub that grows to 15 feet tall by as wide that can be trained up as a tree with large soft green leaves and from late winter through fall appear the large trumpet-like white flowers with green veins that hang downward from the branches at about a 45 degree angle so the open flowers display outwards, which is atypical for tree datura. Like other Brugmansia , but like them give off an intoxicating fragrance at night. Plant in full or part sun to light shade and give occasional to regular irrigation. Although the Brugmansia are hardy to about 20-25 degrees F, they often are semi-deciduous in the winter. The tubular flowers are present most of the year and are narrower than B. x candida with green stripes in the throats. An evergreen large shrub (grows to 15 feet tall and 15 feet wide) that can be trained as a tree. It benefits from a hard cut back in the spring. Angel's Trumpet is one of the common names for Brugmansia, a genus in the Potato Family (Solanaceae) that has 5 species, all from South America. Other common names include Belladona and Datura, although the later is somewhat misleading as Datura is also a genus name to which Brugmansia is closely related. The main distinguishing aspect that separates the Brugmansia from the true species of Datura is that the Brugmansia are large shrubs or small trees and the Datura, or Jimsonweeds (a name corrupted from Jamestown weed), are annual or perennial herbs.  The information about Brugmansia suaveolens 'Single White' displayed on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources we consider reliable.
