Brugmansia double white

 Brugmansia x candida 'Double White'
If you want to grow a shrub/tree which has elegant starched white crisp flowers it is hard to go past the double white form of the Brugmansia or Angel's Trumpet. This week all the Brugmansia are responding to the heat and rain by producing lots of flowers, though, as this one is growing in the shade, the flowers are not in great quantity. It was planted so as to be viewed from a dining room window with the window open in the evening to allow its sweet perfume to enter the room. Perfect for formal dining.......
