Brugmansia x candida 'Double White' (Double White Angel's Trumpet) - Evergreen shrub/tree. Sun or shade. Moderate water needs. Flowers in summer-fall. Grows to about 15'x12'. This fragrant white-flowered datura is one of a kind. The ruffled double flowers are "hose in hose", with each set having a tube to the base of the flower. The foliage of this cultivar is easily distinguished from others by its soft gray hairs. Thought to be a hybrid between Brugmansia aurea and B. versicolor. It benefits from a hard cut back in the spring. Will take sun or shade, moderate water. Although it is hardy to about 20-25 degrees F., it usually will go semi-deciduous in the winter and have some down time then. Angel's Trumpet is one of the common names for Brugmansia, a genus in the Potato Family (Solanaceae) that has 5 species, all from South America. Other common names include Belladona and Datura, although the latter is somewhat misleading as Datura is also a genus name to which Brugmansia is closely related. The main distinguishing aspect that separates the Brugmansia from the true species of Datura is that the Brugmansia are large shrubs or small trees and the Datura, or Jimsonweeds (a name corrupted from Jamestown weed), are annual or perennial herbs.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Brugmansia 'Double White' .
