I received my Angel Trumphet approximately 5 years ago. I received it as a rooted stick. I usually do not see any green coming from the roots until June. By the end of the season it's about 6-7 feet tall. It's late to bloom here, usually end of September thru end of October. Well worth the wait. Smells wonderful and is beautiful. Each year I cut it to the base of the tree, and put leaves around the base, each year it has come back. I have it in the corner of my deck. I have had much success with taking the stick of the cuttings and rooting it over the winter in water, plant in the Spring. All sticks will not survive, but many will, I give them to friends.

Grows in areas of natural compost and felled trees in South America, thus requires regular, frequent plant food/fertilizer and moist soil. In height of summer in Texas needs daily watering and some protection from 90+ sun. Dappled shade in afternoon is helpful. See various brugmansia web sites for more info.
