Angel’s Trumpet in flower in the Royal Botanic Glasshouse
In flower now in our Royal Botanic Glasshouse is the Brugmansia also known as (angel’s trumpet).
Come and see this evergreen or semi-evergreen shrub which is towering upwards at the back of the glasshouse. It has golden yellow, trumpet-shaped flowers, which are often deliciously scented. Although these plants are not fully hardy, they can be positioned outdoors during the frost-free summer months.
Brugmansia were once known as Datura, but that name is now used only for certain annual or short-lived plants with similar but less pendulous flower.
We also have some beautiful nectar-rich meadow flowers growing in our William Dean Orchard next to our Bee hives. You can see Evening Primrose, Foxgloves and Echiums.
The Dorothy Clive Garden is currently open 7 days a week from 10am to 5.30pm. For more information, please visit our website: www.dorothyclivegarden.co.uk.
