Common name: Magnificent Angel's Trumpet
Botanical name: Brugmansia x insignis    Family: Solanaceae (Potato family)

Magnificent Angel's Trumpet is an evergreen shrub or small tree that grows up to 8-12 feet tall by 6-10 feet wide with long flared pink trumpet flowers. This hybrid is a cross between Brugmansia suaveolens and a hybrid of B. suaveolens and B. versicolor. Its large widely-flared pale pink flowers hang downwards and darken with age. The flowers are accentuated by the large dark green leaves. A notable feature that distinguishes the Brugmansia from the true species of Datura is that the Brugmansia are large shrubs or small trees and the Datura, or Jimsonweeds are annual or perennial herbs.
