Leaves turning yellow and falling off Angel Trumpet

restlessJuly 28, 2007

I have been growing an Angel Trumpet for 2 years now and it is about 9 feet tall. I normally use a teaspoon of Miracle-Gro to 2 gal. of water morning and night. Always has beautiful blossoms. The leaves have been turning yellow and falling off. I have tried a tea spoon of epsom salt to gal. of water a few day's ago. No change. Any one have any suggestions.

Thanks;

I would suggest you bump up the Miracle-Gro a notch to at least a tablespoon to 2 gallons of water. That should perk your brug up. My angel trumpets are just starting to bloom. See a picture of one of my Charles Gramaldi brugs that I posted on my blog link below.

This is my first year with Brugmansia, but as far as I can tell, it is normal for the bottom or "trunk" leaves to yellow and fall off, especially in containers.
Considering yours is 9 feet tall (dont know if it is in a container), I am not surprised if it is the lower leaves falling off. all the searches I do for images, in google show leafless trunks so that a bushy Brug eventually becomes more tree-like.

You might consider doing a search in the brugmansia forum.
