Brugs are outside
I seem to remember others stating that Brugmansia will be hardy as long as it does not get below freezing. Is that true? I moved my Brugs outside this afternoon since it will be above freezing for the next ten days. Only a few of my Brugs still have leaves. Most of them are just sticks at this time. It will rain tomorrow so I am hoping the sticks that were plants last year will form leaves. Last year Jean Fasco, versicolor Ecuador Pink, and my NOID Yellow bloomed. My Noid Yellow smelled excellent, Jean Fasco kinda smelled like baby powder, and Ecuador Pink didn't have a fragrance but was beautiful.
Maybe Kel's Girlie Girl will bloom along with Temple Goddess, Peaches and Cream, and Versicolor Apricot this season. Only time will tell. All these Brugs look pretty pitiful at this time but are outside and potted up. This year I will probably leave 1 variety in the ground. My mother left three varieties in the ground last year so they will be a good test for hardiness. I will be sure to let others know if any varieties come back this year here in VA.
