How beautiful, I have one also, it had one bud on it when I got it, and it looked like yours when it opened, can't wait till it has more. It is growing beautifully.

Thanks for sharing the picture

Very well done in your Zone! Beautiful plant you have there.

RE: Brugmansia .....red

Beautiful plant!! Didn't know you could grow them in zone 9. I emailed you. I was wondering if you'd like to do a future brug cutting trade when our plants get bigger?

just gorgeous! i have not had much luck with my 3 brugs.

RE: Brugmansia .....red

Do these red brug's have a fragrence?
I have a small one that hasn't bloomed yet, I grew it from a seed and it's a very slow grower.

Asking all red brug owners, how are you getting it to bloom? Is your summer cooler? I'm in Colorado (Denver area) and it's hot as blazes, and even though my red is in a semi-shady area, not a hint of a bud.

I wish all the hybridizers out there could come up with a red we could plant in Florida that's beautiful!

What you seem to have is an Inca Queen, Brugmansia Sanguinea. Be proud! :)

RE: Brugmansia .....red

wifeofbath, how do you tell the difference?
I know one of them is supposed to be smaller in height, but what other differences are there?
Thank you!

I grew one of these from some seeds I purchased on E-bay, it took about a year but is blooming now, it has no fragrance whatsoever.... I am disapointed....
It is okay. Not my favorite plant. I think I want to sell it. If anyone is interested email me at marilynm@midcom.com, it's about 5 feet tall now. I live in Fullerton, CA.

I have 8 sanguineas...4 each or orange & red (my red is supposed to be Inca Queen). I grew them from seeds last year & they just reached the blooming point at the very end of the season. I grow them in pots, overwintered them in my garage & they're now outside & starting to grow well. I think I can see the very beginning of buds.

Sanguineas are a cool-loving brug. Where it's hot, they perform very poorly (many other types of brugs hold off blooming during hot weather, too). Even in the Seattle area, where all my other brugs take full sun, my sangs wilt easily unless given mostly shade from midday on. Also, sangs don't have a fragrance. They're fun & interesting because they're much fuzzier (all over) than other brugs and the flower size/shape/color is quite different.

Marilyn...sangs are almost always grown from seeds...they're noted for being verrrry difficult to root cuttings from.

Several weeks ago my husband and I were in Carmel (California) and were driving thru his old neighborhood in Pacific Grove where he was raised. There was a house on his old street that had several of these growing over their front fence and in full bloom with what seemd like hundreds of flowers. I made him stop so that I could just stare at them. Absolutely gorgeous! I've seen tons of pictures but never up close and personal.

I went to the door to ask if I could buy a cutting or seeds but alas, no one was home and I didn't have the nerve to take a pinch of the plant.

It really was quite stunning.

Does anyone have any seed and/or cuttings of red sang? I know the cuttings are hard to get going, but I'm willing to give it a try. I have other brug cuttings (rooted and unrooted) I could trade. I also have other plants to trade.
