I’m sure it is very fragrant. I have 8 varieties and 20 plus very large Angels’ Trumpet trees in my front and back yards and fragrance is overwhelming at night here right now.

If you go to the San Francisco and Santa Cruz Bay Areas you’ll see much larger ones. I think Santa Cruz has the largest I’ve seen. They grow to 30 ft (10 m) tall. It’s all due to the high rainfall in winter.

It must be overpowering! Angel perfume!
I grew a white flowered one years ago, it was just fabulous, but nothing like this one.
