Gardeners' Notes:

I was originally given a cutting of a yellow Angels Trumpet around five years ago, and consistently kept it in a pot. Over the years, it grew larger and larger with an unbelievable blooming cycle, and an unbelievable fragrance. During the past five years, I have taken pieces that were broken off of the mother plant, and rooted them and passed several on to friends. After being given a cutting of a white Angles Trumpet by my best friend and neighbor, and being tired of constantly having to water my original plant in a huge pot, this year I have planted both the original yellow and the cutting of the white in the ground. The original yellow plant is now over 4' tall, and has had one blooming cycle, gearing up for another one at this time. The white is 2.5-3' tall and has also bloomed once, and is gearing up for a second. The sweet smell of the plant when 10-15 blooms are open at one time makes anybody stop and smell!! I just hope they winter well in the ground here in south Georgia.
