Our Brugmansia candida plant (White Angel’s Trumpet) is growing quite tall reaching for the sky. The south facing position between the house and fence makes it grow higher to reach for sunlight. This very poisonous plant ( the flowers, leaves, bark etc) has attractive trunks and branches. The older the plant, the more rough and knobbly the bark looks. The cutting marks on the branches will grow thick calluses and create very interesting formations.
Unusual Bark Formations:
The spotted trunks and branches look rugged and rough, knobbly, warty and holey that are full of cracks and lines. The nooks and crannies are good hiding place for creepy crawlies. Pill bugs (Armadillidiidae) make the holes a good hiding place.
The White Angel’s Trumpet is growing taller than the gutter line:
