Angel's Trumpet Overview

Shrub to small tree with an abundance of creamy white trumpet flowers, borne from late spring to autumn. The closely related Dutara arborea are often confused with these smaller trumpets, but have bigger flowers and flowers in flushes. The white flowers are very fragrant – especially during the night to lure moth pollinators.
