angelstrumpet 013angelstrumpet 011I’ve been watching the Angel’s Trumpet form buds for the past couple of days and finally last night it began opening.  This is a tropical plant but easily grown in this zone from seed each year.  It’s large flowers (about 10″ long and 4″ across) make for a pretty spectacular plant, which by summer’s end will be the size of a small shrub.angelstrumpet 012
