I would be interested in getting a brugmansia for my garden this year but haven't come across any in the gardening catalogues that I have. Does anyone know a source. Thank you.

Hi Betty,

I've seen them listed in one catalogue last year but i wouldn't recommend them. The price was $29.99 for a 3" pot - that's extremely small.

I suggest that you check out a website called Brugmansia etc. Google it and you'll see one that indicates it is from 2004. That's okay. The woman who runs it is Liz.

I believe that this is pretty much the only credible brug company in Canada. You can choose named varieties which is important if you are going to trade or collect a few types.

hope this helps point you in the right direction. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you Green Thumb Guy. I found the website and it is truly wonderful. I emailed my questions and hope to hear from Liz. Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction. Betty

I sent you an email. Let me know if you got it, please. I believe there is also a note from Ruth Anne, in the brugmansia forum for you.

RE: Brugmansia - Where Do You Buy Them?

Hi Betty:
Do you know anyone who has Brug. plants? I had been trying to get plants or seed for a long time, but was lucky enough for someone who had them to send me three rooted plants. Aparently that's the easiest and best way because the seed does not usually come true to the plant. So if you can get hold of some cuttings, root them and grow them through the winter, you'll be all set. And rooting them is supposed to be very easy. If you go on the exchange site in the fall, there are lots of offers of Brug. cuttings. I can't wait to get mine in the ground this spring - they are such beautiful blooms.
