Hope someone can help me out.

I ordered several plants back in May but forgot to put down my ID sticks...one of those plants was a 3 in 1 Angel Trumpet. Due to the heat I let the weeds go a little wild this year and was hacking away and almost cut this down today, until I really looked at it.

Does this resemble the trumpet plant at all? There are no blooms so I'm not sure what it is but the base of the plant is more "tree like" so I doubt it's a big weed.

Anyone recognize this?

Hi Synn, Welcome!

I agree, and great growing; they look like very happy, healthy Angel's Trumpets! Thumbs up

I've read that the plants labeled as Angel's Trumpet 3 in 1 (also sold as 3 N 1) are not actually a single plant with three different colors of blooms but rather three separate colors of Brugmansia planted in the same container. The 3 in 1name is more than likely an advertising ploy ... but they sure look pretty when they are all in bloom at the same time.

You may be at the edge of hardiness for Datura suaveolens, if that is the plant in question. Try laying a banana at the base of your plant, or pureรฉ'ing the banana diluted in water and pouring at the base. Next year, start doing a few weeks after the solstice. This is the season for buds to start forming. Even where I am, the bloom period before frost zaps the plants can be short. Turning a pot upside-down over the spot where your plants are, or even better, covering with a pile of leaves, after frost knocks them down, could help with ensuring the survival of the roots.
