Answer: A ficus tree can be planted in the ground. They grow large, though, so be sure to provide lots of growing room. The trick to maximizing blooms on your Angel's Trumpet, is to prune it often. Pruning your Angel Trumpet bush into a tree shape creates the often desired appearance. Begin to prune the plant when the main trunk forms the first "Y". Then, prune older branches, or stems, to encourage the plant to produce more branches. Flowers will eventually appear on the terminal ends of the stems.
Best wishes with your garden!
