Angels Summer Dream fragrance?

kimka(Zone 6B)July 14, 2010

I just had my first flowers from a recent purchase of AngelÂs Summer Dream (from Logee's summer sale so it should be true to name). Unlike my other brugs, it didn't seem to have much of a fragrance.

Have other people found it to be lacking in fragrance too or is this just the strange weather we've had in around Washington DC this summer.

Wish you would have posted a pic don't think I have ever seen that one love all the angel collection. I have a few angels sunbeam and angels flight waiting for them to grow to flower If they don't have a strong scent I will be disapointed angels exotic is a strong grower too Later this fall I should be posting a few pic's

Make sure you sniff it at night. A lot of mine only smell strong then. In the early evening or morning they have almost no scent. One is so strong I can smell it when I walk out the door and sniff my way over to it but others have a more slight fragrance and you have to sniff the flower.

I received mine back in early May and had a flower developing for the last 3-4 weeks but killed the flower as it was getting ready to open by overwatering. I have another getting ready to open and I can let you know if smell anything.

I have a few of the angel's varieties but none have held their buds yet. Hopefully I'll get blooms this season. I can only smell brugs in the evening. None of mine have any fragrance during the day.

My Angel's Summer Dream has been slowly dropping the flowers out of the buds over the past week. So far as I am seeing color develop, at this point have no fragrance at night on mine.

Yes my Angels Summer Dream has fragrance at night but not strong enough that it carries long distances.

My Angel's Summer dream has been flowering for quite some time now. It is a real bloomer, keeps going and going and going. I havent been impressed with much fragrance and any fragrance I do smell isnt the kind of fragrance I like in Brugmansia. The flowers themselves dont last as long on the ASD as they do on my Supernova Brugmansia. I would give 3-4 days for each bloom to last. I will likely scrap it and try a Dr. Suess since I am more after fragrance than just a flower.
