Brugmansia 'Cherub' (Cherub Angel Trumpet)
Zone: 7b to 10b,
Height: 84" tall
Pot Size: 2 qt. (1.9 L)
I've grown many angel trumpet selections over the years, but none have blown me away like Brugmansia 'Cherub'. Brugmansia 'Cherub' is the first angel trumpet out of the ground in spring, the most vigorous, and by far the most floriferous. This seedling of Brugmansia 'Ecuador Pink' was hybridized by Dr. Jim Alston of Park Seed. The 7' tall stalk jumps out of the ground in spring, adorned by long, dark green leaves. Starting in late summer (NC), the top of the deer-resistant clump is adorned with hundreds of large, dangling salmon-pink trumpet-shaped flowers that are exceedingly fragrant in the afternoon and evening...simply superb!
