Brugmansia, or Trumpet Vine, is a vigorous grower but you should be able to keep it under control by pinching and pruning. It can produce up to 15' of growth in a single season so plan to prune each year in the early spring, leaving only two buds per branchlet. If you don't want to prune it back that far, just prune it to the height you want, knowing that it will grow vigorously this summer. Enjoy!
