    MY WHITE BRUG

    This is my first brugmansia, it froze to the ground 2 years ago it was about 15 foot tall now it about 4 feet tall.  It doesn't have a name that I know of, it has 100's of blooms in a flush when it is full grown

    MOULIN ROUGE JUST OPENING

    Moulin Rouge just starting to color up, she didn't get to finish cause I pollenated her with MEM and had to rip the bloom apart.

    PINK BRUG

     

    This is one of four brugs that I had left from my disasterous past 3 years all lost there tags.  One of my customers wants some bigger Angel Trumpets so they will all get a new home and she won't care if they don't have names. LOL

    LB GARTEN

     

    LB GARTEN, I have started over collecting more brugs and they are starting to bloom for me, they are so pretty.  I can't wait till they are bigger.  I have been paranoid about planting them in the ground, but I realize I can't keep them all in pots.  I have 1 3/4 acres and hundreds of feet of irrigation that we put in just for my brugs. now we have a larger pump and it is working great.  I can't let fear stop me from growing these beautiful plants in my yard.  But I will always have new cuttings coming up, just in case of trouble. LOL

    This one has spots on the leaves and I am hoping it is just water spots. I have to keep an eye on it. Wet weather can bring on lots of annoying  stuff.

    HERBSTZAUBER

     

    This is Herbstzauber, the blooms are elongated I don't know if this is right for this brug. Can someone let me know if they think it is labeled wrong.  I have to see if it gets more color too. Maybe the next flush will be different, I just repotted them a couple of weeks ago and all of my brugs are still small but they seem to be doubling in size weekly.

    apicot versicolor

     

    This is a versicolor that I have had about 8 years, I keep it small because it is up under a overhang, this is the front of my grooming shop, I am redoing the flower bed and haven't decided what to put in it yet, it gets shade most of the day but it is still hot and dry there.

    Well that is it for tonight, I will share my adenium "desert rose" collection tomorrow.

    Thank You!!
    I have been collecting some really nice brugs, some have died, no fault of there own. just wrong timing on my part and not being home enough to take care of them when it was critical.
    I am an addict!! LOL

    I have learned what doesn't work and I have my yard set up to plant them in ground with a drip system all along my fence line and in my flower beds.
    This year we bought a larger pump and it will help alot we have over 500 or 600 hundred foot of pipe in ground, plus two 40 foot flower beds that have drip line too.

    I want to keep my best brugs in pots just in case of disaster in the weather.
    But I know it won't be possible to keep them all in pots, it's just too much work and the potting soil is too expensive. We don't have good soil in our area, it is all sand.

    Tomorrow I have an AG inspector coming to see about getting certified as a nursery.
    I am excited about it. I will be selling a few locally and possibly on line, it will help to support my habit.
    I will be concentrating on brugs and adenium, I have a lot of adenium seedlings coming up, but it will be a couple of years before they are ready to sell. They are a little different but very hardy just slow growing if you want them to be a bonsai type plant.
