Brugmansia - Angel's Trumpets wilting in the 100 degree heat (Brugmansia - Angel's Trumpets)

All my Angel's Trumpets are wilting and burning in the 100 degree F/ 38 degree C heat here. So many of my shade plants are burning! : > ( Photo taken July 16, 2010.

poor looks so sad...will it recover?

Yes, they will recover...but many of the leaves are falling off the many Angel's Trumpet I have in my yard. The intense heat has scorched the leaves...that's even with giving them tons of water.

Angel's Trumpet typically wilts during our hot summer weather ...however, the leaves usually don't burn off.

you aren't the only one, sadly. I'm losing some of my ferns. They'll come back - but not this year.

Hope your ferns come back soon!

Yes, unfortunately most of the U.S. is under the grips of a horrible heat wave.

When it gets so hot, even with humidity, most plants hate it.

Well, the ferns have gone dormant before due to drought, they'll go dormant again and survive. I just hate those horrible barren patches in the shade garden! It's bad enough that my measly sun garden - filled with rudbeckia that keeps flopping over - looks so forlorn, but I've been counting on the fern garden to look good 'til fall.

I hope it cools down a bit for you soon! It may help the ferns to recover...maybe?

I have problems with ferns also...they need shade and lots of water. I have a beautiful Blechnum gibbum - Dwarf tree fern and it's been dug out of the ground 3 times over the last 5 years to find shadier spots.
