Brugmansia arborea

This is one of the original wild species of Brugmansia which forms a shrub or small tree in drier valleys of the Andes from Northern Chile to Ecuador. It grows up to 3000m making it the hardiest of genus, though not so fond of the damp cold winters of Northern England.

The white flowers, small for the genus are fragrant at night unlike those of the other ‘cold-group’ Brugmansia (B. sanguinea and B.vulcanicola) and are produced successively in season rather than in flushes as in most of the genus.
