Ultra-fragrant 9-inch Trumpets!

In the sunny garden, this tropical beauty reaches 5 feet tall and up to 8 feet wide!
Exquisitely colored and so long-lasting, Cherb is simply best pink Angel's Trumpet ever grown! Bred right here at Park Seed by our own Doc Alston from the old favorite 'Ecuador Pink,' this giant offers ultra-fragrant 9-inch blooms for three months or more. A fine solitary planting for the front yard or border standout, it can also be grown in containers, where it will stay somewhat smaller than its generous size, yet still sport enormous blooms. The blooms sport a delicate rosy shade of pink, with the perfect trumpet shape for which this tropical plant is so beloved. The fragrance is rich, sweet, and intense, filling garden or patio with the essence of the summer garden! Magnificent!

And after the blooms finally stop (usually in early to mid-fall, when the colder weather sets in), it's hard to miss them too much, because lovely ornamental fruit (the seedpods) follow. Use these in indoor arrangements and enjoy a second season of beauty from Cherub!

In large containers, Cherub will stay reasonably compact, filling the available space, but in the garden this plant really takes off! Expect it to form a dense, well-branched shrub 5 feet tall and anywhere from 6 to 8 feet wide. You can imagine how many blooms a plant of this size can produce over a long season -- and Cherub is a hard worker!

If you live north of zone 9, as most of us do, you can still grow Cherub for more than one season. If it's potted up, bring the container indoors well before first frost, and keep it in a sunny window, watered and fed, all winter long. If you are growing it in the garden, wait until the temperature drops in mid to late fall and then cut the above-ground growth back until you can dig up the tuber. Pot it up and place it in a sunny window, feeding and watering it, through winter, then transplant it back into the garden in spring after the soil has thoroughly warmed. Now, Angel's Trumpet is not crazy about being transplanted, so this may shorten its bloom season a bit (it will take longer to get going again), but for many of us, it's well worth it to have these blooms year after year!

Give Cherub plenty of sunshine, and water and feed it well. It really isn't fussy about soil type, but the drainage needs to be good. Enjoy this fragrant, colorful wonder. Zones 9-11.
