|By Esc on Apr 17, 2014 2:26 PM, concerning plant: Angel's Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Cassie's Curls')
I have a brugmansia. Cassie's curls. Angel's trumpet. I live in San Antonio. My yard faces west-south-west. A big oak tree blocks late afternoon sun. I am looking for advice on where to plant this. In a container? Hanging basket? My gardens are full and really don't have room. The plant arrived in the mail after our perennials came back and we added new so we're pretty full. Would appreciate any suggestions. I'm inexperienced with this plant. Thanks.

This is not my favorite tree, simply because it looks dead in the winter when I would like more of a lively presence. It's very beautiful when it first greens up, kind of a soft look to it, and is also nice in fall when it turns. Grows fairly quickly.

I think that Salvia lanceolata is NOT a synonym of Salvia reflexa. There is a photo of one Savia reflexa with a blue flower and the rest with the pinkish flower and bracts are Salvia lanceolata in the ATP database. I'm growing the one with the showy rusty pink bracts and flowers. We have it listed as Salvia lanceolata and i was about to change it to reflexa............ Any Salvia experts in the ranks of ATP?

This is a non-native invasive in the Pacific Northwest. It quickly will overwhelm an entire field and livestock generally won't eat it. The best way we've found to eradicate it is to simply mow it regularly. If it doesn't go to seed, it will eventually go away. Patience is a virtue.

Assuming that what I grow is in fact G. murielae, much of the literature underestimates its potential height. Last year was my first growing these, and in full sun and rich sandy loam my plants easily exceeded 4 feet in height. As recommended, I kept the soil constantly moist.
