Anyone grow these in MN besides me?
Just the 'Frosty Pink' Brugmansia, so far, and only two or three plants of it. I see others around, though.
Do you want some differant varieties? I have over 50 differant plant species.
Hey, Jerry, that's a wonderful, generous offer, and my natural inclination is to jump on it and say yes, absolutely... but I have a feeling that's why I'm feeling slightly overwhelmed by gardening at the moment. ;-) I should probably pass, but I thank you kindly. I would enjoy hearing about more about one or two things that do well for you, though.
50 species? Sounds as if you have a wonderful collection! I'd gladly send you cuttings of 'Frosty Pink' if you don't have it and were looking for it (not a general offer). Is your want list up to date?
I have 'Frosty Pink', thanks for the offer.
Yes my trade list is up to date.
Hi, Jerry! I cruised over to the Brugmansia forum after posting this and looked at your photos. Beautiful photos and gardens! You seem to have an enviable amount of growing space and have filled it admirably. Very nice!
I asked about your trade list only because you listed Epiphyllums in your want list. If you have a large collection of those as well, you probably have the type I have already too. It was a gift from long ago, and I never knew its name... nothing too extraordinary, sort of fuschia/red coloration, if that makes sense. I could find an image of something that looks similar (and may have an actual photo buried somewhere). But if you've been collecting those for a while, you're probably covered.
I have grown the white Datura for decades.
Had a pink one but it simply go to large for the area and I have never gotten around to replacing it.
My white one reseed them selves every year.
