Brugmansia aurea

by Delisa Harvey

Brugmansia aurea comes from the Andes region in Columbia, Venezuela and Ecuador.  A small tree reaching to 25 ft. with either smooth or somewhat hairy leaves is very strong growing and has the largest leaves of all Brugmansia.  The leaves on young plants are sometimes coarsely-toothed, while those on mature plants are smooth-edged.  Frost will kill this Brugmansia like all Brugmansia in this group.   The calyx is slit possessing 2 to 5 teeth and flowers are 6-10 inches long, nodding to upright. At dusk and night the scent is very strongly and sweetly fragrant. The narrow part of the corolla tube is completely covered by the calyx Fruit is egg-shaped, 3-6 inches long, containing large seeds with corky seed coats. The seeds are the largest of all Brugmansia seed.
