Brugmansia versicolor is a large, very fast growing shrub. It reaches a height of approximately 5 meters in height.
It offers a majestic port with its soft branches supporting large leaves and very large flowers, between 30 and 50cm, in the shape of drooping trumpets.
The flowers offer a powerful but pleasant fragrance.
The particularity of this variety lies in the fact that the flowers, which are very often white at the start, change color when the plant ages, going from white to pink to peach.
This plant is easy to grow in pots and can spend summers outdoors in cooler climates.
All parts of the plant are highly toxic by ingestion. Watch out for children.
