RE: angel trumpets

How are you looking to train an Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia) on an arbor? It's a tree like perennial. In areas with no cold temps it really is a tree and in temperate climates it usually reaches about 8-10' during the growing season. In zones 7b -9 it will die back and return in the spring. In colder zones it's normally brought inside and allowed to go dormant over the winter.
