Description
Huge and heavily fragrant pure white trumpet flowers, with a soft lavender picotee edge, 20cm (8in) long and 10-15cm (4-6in) across, hang from tree-like plants, with soft, slate-blue foliage. Perfect for growing in tubs, containers, on patios or sheltered corners close to the house where the evening perfume can be appreciated. Despite their exotic appearance they are relatively tough under windy and rainy conditions, adapting to many soil types. Height: 90-120cm (36-48in), spread 90-95cm (36-38in).

Sowing
Sow February to March. Soak seed in warm water for 24 hours before sowing. Place seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at a temperature of between 15-20ºC (59-68ºF). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination usually takes 21-60 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Plant out once plants are well grown, 1.2m (4ft) apart. For best results, provide a moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Do not feed plants, but water well.

More Info

Remove seedpods regularly to encourage further blooms. Plants can be overwintered in frost-free conditions. Cut back to the base and keep plants barely moist until spring.

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, toxic if eaten.
