Angel's Trumpets

This past winter,I wrote of the Great Freezes of '09,which struck Florida,and the devastation that happened upon the GreatWall.You can read about that great sadness here.
But hope is eternal,and the Angel's Trumpets have survived and are thriving.I love when they are in bud,and flowering at the same time.
When they first open up,they are white,and then their color changes to........

....... the prettiest,palest peach color!


This is a 3-fer post,because,as some you already know,we are incredibly lazy arse people!

Aren't they so pretty! Trumpets, indeed!

Kitty said...

So beautiful! I don't think they'd EVER be able to grow in this cold wet country! Thanks for sharing.

And thanks too for your comment earlier - I should have mentioned that the volcano is long extinct! There are a few volcanic plugs in my area - hard to imagine that the landscape was once very different...

So pretty! I love your great wall. We had the Great Freeze of 2006 and almost lost our giant Ficus tree out front! Naughty weather. I must come back and visit again. **blows kisses** Deborah

I'm always so impressed when I see these trumpet flowers. I haven't known about them very long, they look so tropical and you have taken beautiful photos of them. Thank you for sharing, and have a great week.

mine froze this year must get more mental note sandy

niartist said...

Beautiful! I really want to plant some of these and train them to grow on the non-existant - but soon to be, pergola. I'm not sure that they'll stay alive here though. I'll have to do some research - they're gorgeous! :) Thanks for playing along with Share a Garden Sunday! I'm in envy - and I learned something! :)

Ebie said...

Always a classic!

Prospero said...

These are some of my favorite flowers. How tall do your daturas get? Do you ever have trouble with the heat?

ChrisC and JonJ said...

Because this one was so damaged by the freezes this past winter,it is only about 5' tall.Hopefully,by the end of summer it will be even taller.I did take a cutting from this one last fall,before the freezes,and it's about 3' tall.And another cutting is being rooted now.w00t!

ChrisC and JonJ said...

And they seem to love the heat,too.another w00t!!!

Rhonda said...

Lovely! I've never tried growing those. Yours are beautiful. I'm so glad they survived your freeze. ~~Rhonda

Meems said...

Chris,
When you take a cutting do you just plant it directly in dirt without any special treatment? Or do you dig up from the root? My neighbor wants to give me some but I was wondering what to do with it. Yours are beautiful.

ChrisC and JonJ said...

Meems-I root my cuttings in a pot.No rooting hormone or anything.So,I think it would work to just stick them in the ground,too.I do it that way just because I'm never sure where I'm going to plant them.

Blue Muse said...

Mmmm the perfume of these are unbelievably wonderful. I have some in the backyard and my neighbor has them along our property line -- when the sea breeze dances through, that wonderful Angel's trumpet fills our entire home with that intoxicating scent!
I have never seen one the color you have! We only have the white, soft yellow and pale salmon - nothing as exotic as yours! Gorgeous!

Angel Trumpets are great! I thought I lost one a couple of years ago, then new growth started and this year I have blooms again.
