My aunt gave me something a friend gave her. She said it was called Gabriel's Trumpet. It is just a stick about 1.5 inches in diameter. She said to just stick it in the ground and it will turn into a flowering plant. Does anyone know what this is? Or another name for it? Or its scientific name? Or more instructions on how and where to grow it? Thanks.
Since Gabriel is mentioned in the Bible as an angel http://bible.whitinger.net/search.php3?search_text=Gabriel we must presume that this plant is actually an Angel's Trumpet, which would be a Brugmansia. Which one? We'll probably have to wait and see after it flowers. Plant it in the ground watch it go!
