About Brugmansia arborea

 

Arborea has its origins in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador, Peru, northern Chile, and Bolivia.  Climatically arborea favors high elevations and will withstand light frost and some drought.  Brugmansia flowers, not in bursts as other Brugmansia, but continuously during flowering season.  This white Brugmansia species is considered to be one of the more intensely fragrant.   Brugmansia arborea is different that other Brugmansia species in that the styles are hairy.  In all other Brugmansia species the styles are smooth.  As with Brugmansia aurea, the seed pods of B. arborea are egg-shaped.
