Rating for this plant:
Brugmansias, or 'Angle's trumpets.' were once considered 'Datura.' Now datura is looked upon as commonly called 'Devil's trumpets,' and have their own classification.
Origin of Brugmansia is western South America, in small breaks or clearings between the huge giants that make up the rainforests. For this reason, they receive direct sunlight, but also dappled/bright lighting for some of the day. They are fast growers, and will bloom from seed usually in the first year, and within 18 months from cuttings.
Brugmansias thrive in heat, but certain species will 'wilt' at the hottest part of the day. For this reason, you may end up watering the plant twice daily during your hottest summer months. Brugs like their feet constantly moist, but not soggy.
They are also ravenous feeders and enjoy rich, loamy soil with sand cut in for good drainage. I have never been able to over fertilize a brugmansia. Tomato fertilizer works well, and use it at least once a week with proportion listed on box during it's growing times. (This depends on your climate) In zones 9B and above, this is March through December. If you can get their soil, water and fertilizer needs met, they will bloom many times a year for you.
Most blooms have a very intoxicating, heady fragrance that becomes more intense as the hours become later. In nature, they are pollinated by large Sphinx moths and certain species of hummingbirds.
Bloom color also depends on the temperature. The colors are usually a plae wispy green and white as the long tubular flower first begins to open, and the colors change and intensify as the flower ripens and the temperatures warm at different parts of the day. After fully 'ripe,' the flowers pale slightly from green and white, to peach and white, and finally to a creamy-white with deep pink throat. Summer flowers may have a different finished color than spring flowers. Notice the two photos I took. Same flowers, colors change as flower begins to open.
Since brugmansia is in the solanaceae family, it is visited by butterflies that like this family for hosts to their young. Horn worms
can be found eating at their tender parts during late summer months. If you have taken good care of the plant, you should sacrifice this small part to the caterpillar, and not kill it. They are the next generation pollinators.

Add an inch or so of well rotted compost each spring to the drip-line, first stirring top soil layer gently with a metal rake. This better infuses the nutrients.
Brugmansia do well in containers if you live in colder regions, or can be dug up and moved inside during colder months. Because they do not grow too large, many gardeners will leave them in large planters and just haul them back in when cold weather threatens.
Brugmansia are propagated easily from seed or root cuttings, but only come true from parent-cloned cuttings.
Brugs are highly toxic!
These include atropine, scopolamine, and hyoscyamine. Keep children and pets away from all parts of the plant.
With some luck and good gardening care, I think you'll fall in love with this beautiful plant as much as I have.
I will post more about propagation of Brugmansia on my 'opinion' of 'Brugmansia 'Frosty Pink.'
