Angels Trumpets and the Full Moon

I read somewhere recently that Brugmansia (Angels Trumpet) blooms most heavily at the time of the summer full moons, so I've been patiently waiting. I am definitely now a believer, based upon what Brugmansia "Betty Marshall" is doing! Between the August heat and humidity, the fragrance is enough to knock you over! (Patti thinks we need to inject the fragrance into soap.....)
Even the Encore Azaleas are doing their thing for the Lady in the Moon!
Chuck took over 300 photos this morning, so more will be posted tomorrow. If you click on the photos above, they will appear in their full original size. This combination of two containers that includes the brugmansia is a pair that I think turned out really well this season.


  1. Hmmm, to me angel's trumpet is Datura, but no matter! Love the photos and I love night-bloomers!

  2. Beautiful combination and it is rare to see containers looking this good in August.

  3. What plants would you add to the ground cover for a potted Brugmansia? : )
