What is the name of this plant?
Question of the Week. What is the name of this plant??? Please post your comments below. The answer will be revealed next week !
The answer is Brugmansia spp.
Edward F. Gillman states in his publication:
“This small tree with large, 6- to 8-inch-long, simple leaves
makes a dramatic statement in any landscape. Reaching
perhaps to 15 feet tall, this densely foliated plant puts on a no
less than spectacular show when in full bloom in summer and
fall. Flowers hang from the stems and branches and drape the
plant with orange, white or yellow for a number of weeks.
Flowers can be up to 12 inches long.”
In Northwest Florida, this may die to the ground in the winter, and will need protection from extremely cold temperatures
It often will re-seed itself.
