    Kathy, my plants are roofline tall ;-( If I used pots rather than in-ground would they be bushier like yours? Also, my brother in Galveston was over-run with Purple Angels from a plant I gave him a few years back, now he pulls them up--LOL!

    Would you be willing to send me a rooted cutting from this plant? I love that color and am moving into a loft apartment in a few days with huge windows and lots of inside room. I grew Angel trumpets when I lived in Texas and love them. :)

    Hi Kitty! Yes, you could probably keep your plant from getting tall and leggy and be bushier if it was in a pot. However, my neighbors trim their trumpet tree that's in the ground down to 3' every year and it is very bushy. OMG...wish I had one of those purple angels your brother throws away!!! They must be awesome.
