Welcome! Tomp

I am not sure what you mean by a 'dwarf trumpet' I am suspecting you may be referring to Datura, which tends to be more shrubby than the tall growing Brugmansia. They should not be hard to find in your area; they are also easily grown from seed.

Tom if you can find a friend or neighbor with a similar plant to what your wife wants, just ask for a cutting. They start really easily from cuttings, too.

As to dwarf, they're not so common amongst Brugmansia but as Hetty said the Daturas (close relative) are smaller. Still, your wife can readily prune it to stay whatever size she wants. They take very kindly to pruning, and in a few years, just start another plant if the old one gets too stunted-looking or woody. Btw, we have a whole forum for Brugmansias - click on here:

There actually are dwarf brugmansias. Logees used to carry a dwarf called Angels Summer Dream. It may still be available there. I know someone has purchased one recently in TX at a local nursery, but they don't do mail order . There's also one called Dwarf Cherub.

They do have a wide selection, but I'd never recommend you buy anything from Logee's, from my experience.

They sell very small, wimpy plants for outrageous prices. Been there, done that.
