Brugmansia 'Miner's Claim' PP15,747 (Variegated Angel's Trumpet) - A variegated form of 'Frosty Pink' found at Monterey Bay Nursery with broad creamy-yellow to ivory-white margined foliage and salmon-pink flowers. As with 'Frosty Pink' this plant is an evergreen shrub or small tree that grows to 8 to 12 feet tall by 6-10 feet wide. It benefits from a hard cut back in the spring, will take sun or shade and appreciates 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. This wild foliage plant was discovered as a sport on a crop of Brugmansia 'Frosty Pink' in 1999 by Luen Miller of Monterey Bay Nursery. This plant received plant patent 15,747 on May 3, 2005. 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 Belladonna 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.
