Very interesting Brugmansia, 'Greenbank' developed as a sport of 'Snowbank'. The bare trunk still throws variegated sprouts while the top foliage is deep green.

This Brugmansia retains tetraploid qualities. Dark green foliage. Tall and statuesque, it has grown to perfect alley form of its own will.

Blooms are large, recurved, long tendrils, and fragrant.
Colours from white, to creamy white, to apricot, to dark peach. Luminesent when light coloured as dark falls. Fertile, it has produced pods and viable seeds.
