Brugmansia x insignis (Pink Angel's Trumpet) - Evergreen shrub/tree that grows to 8 to 12 feet tall by 6-10 feet wide with long flared pink flowers summer-fall. This hybrid is a cross between Brugmansia suaveolens and a hybrid of B. suaveolens and B. versicolor. Its large widely-flared pale pink flowers hang downwards and darken with age. The flowers are accentuated by the large dark green leaves. 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. B. insignis is a hybrid between B. versicolor x and a rose form of B. suaveolens. 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.  Information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips would aid others in growing Brugmansia x insignis.
