Antique Botanical Illustration for Crafts, Collage, Scrapbooking or Card Making: Flowering Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia suaveolens)

“May I a small house and large garden have;
And a few friends,
And many books, both true.”
― Abraham Cowley

A botanical illustration from Henderson's Handbook of Plants that shows a small flowering tree growing in a landscaped, walled garden. The tree is actually semi-woody shrub called Brugmansia suaveolens, also commonly known as angel trumpet or angel's tears. The remarkably beautiful flowers (usually white but can be yellow or pink) are sweetly fragrant in the evenings so they can attract pollinating moths but hang half-closed during the day. A lovely graphic to embellish a greeting card, mixed media or scrapbook project. You can download the high-resolution 6” x 7.5” @ 300 ppi JPEG here.
