Gardeners' Notes:

Positive mhladybear On Aug 14, 2007, mhladybear from Mchenry, IL wrote:

Purchased 3 years ago from nursery, but had no name attached. It is apricot color and closely matches the Creamsicle. First year up to 50 flowers at once - constantly rebloomed until frost. It's brought into the house every winter and put outside after frost. Last year no flowers and no "y's". This year first flowers (7) have just appeared on one stem that has formed the "y". Is there any way to make the other branches "y"? This is an amazing plant and very fragrant in the evening. My husband and I first saw it in a small town near Niagra Falls and were hooked. Propagates easily, but no flowers on the new plants that are 2yrs old and have no "y's".

I had huge blooms on a small young plant. The blooms were long lasting and just beautiful. They held up very well (unlike my Ecuador Pink) even though we were having a heatwave . These blooms are very impressive and i recommend them to any brug grower.

A beautiful large double flower with a soft orange color similiar to the Creamsicle ice cream. The flowers will last longer if planted in afternoon shade.

I read in the 2nd Edition of Dogs For Dummies By Gina Spadafori that Angel's Trumpet is toxic for dogs. (Just thought dog owners should know)
