WANTED: Looking for my first brugmansia

garden_n_mom(7)April 28, 2008


I have never grown a brug before and would love to grow one or two. I've heard that Charles Grimaldi? is good for a first timer, but would be open to suggestions. I'm really excited to grow this for the first time and see what the craze is all about. I have seen these and smelled them in nurseries and they are spectacular!

I am looking for a cutting or plant, rooted cuttings are fine also. I can send postage, plants, cuttings, seeds, I may have some books I can trade also. Please check my trade list and see if there is anything there you can use. I also carry offline lists, let me know if you'd be interested in seeing these. They consist of everything I have, so not all will be ready.

Please let me know. Thanks so much for your time!

Hi garden_n_mom,

I have cuttings of a peachy color brug here that I am rooting for a newbie, and if you'd like to try my unnamed brug, I can email you a photo of it. It's very fragrant, and enormous, as I live in south FL. As we are in different zones, trading can be a bit tricky. I am renting, so only have pots on patios here. Landlady has kindly offered me any cuttings or divisions for myself or to trade for what I would like. Very nice gesture! I am new to gardening here, so can't even identify most of the plants here. Right now I'm trying to root cuttings of a beautiful variegated leaf hibiscus, green/white/fuscia edges, which matches the deeply colored blooms. It's quite beautiful, and she advises me that it is a rare one. If I get the cuttings to root and you would like to try one, probably annual where you are, that's possible also.

Right now I'm trying to select just a few good old standbys for ease of maintenance here in the heat, along with a couple of my heart's desire. I love adeniums, crown of thorns, white orchid cactus, if you have any of those. Or would consider others you might suggest.
