  • Southern Brugmansia Group Because we're having unseasonably warmer weather,(80's) my brugs are waking up! :) I've been pulling back the soggy mulch to let the sun dry them out a bit and beautiful new green and white shoots are coming off the dead mother stem from last year! The weather is supposed to get cooler in a week, so I will be watchful to cover them up in the chance of a frost. So exciting!

  • kasha77 I was wondering if anyone can give me some info.I live in zone 7b, NC. Every year I cut down my brugs and leave 8-10 inches of a stem. It always withers and dies, even though I cover it with mulch once it gets cold. Every spring, new shoots appear next to the old dead stem. Is there any good reason why I need to leave 8 - 10 inches of a stem if it will die any way? Just curious. Those could have been used for some nice cuttings for rooting. (Boy- do I have an addiction problem or what?! :) Thanks!

  • kasha77 The weather's been cooler and the angels really appreciate it! Everyone of them is a luscious dark green and many have had their first full flushes. U conn Treasure is awesome- with lovely white blooms hanging straight down. Painted Lady has HUGE blooms! Creamsickle is a lovely angel again this year. Angels Golden Dreams is just popping and smells like lemons! I have a few new noids that I started from seed that I might register next year. Huge flowers and huge flushes too. This is our angels' time of year to shine! My 2 yr old fragrant yellow is intoxicating even 20 feet away! Also, my petite double yellow American Pride is filling the night air with its sweetness! Xena has a wonderful spicy sweet fragrance and is covered in blooms. It's a treat just to walk by at night. I have many doubles that are ready to bloom soon, can't wait! What's everyone else been doing lately? Let's see some photos!

  • Southern Brugmansia Group Boy this heat is really something! (90's -100) We get a little bit of rain, then it completely dries up before the plants get a chance to absorb it. So I'm out watering this evening, even though it's supposed to rain later. You just never know! My Hosta beds are slowly getting established. They will probably take off next year. The old saying, "first year sleep- second year creep third year LEAP!" seems to apply here. I need to sow more Triple Purple and yellow datura seeds, I really want them this year. I think they'll look great surrounding my purple elephant ears. My Brugs are leaping into growth- I'm throwing every kind of fertilizer at them this year. I've read somewhere that a combo of beer, molasses, and sea kelp will make them really take off. If anyone has the recipe, please post it. Otherwise, I'll just toss in h2o and experiment. Anyone ever use a little Ironite on them in the beginning of spring? I've used Epsom salts and they don't like it. I was careful not to use too much. Anyway-don't mean to whine and complain- hope ya'll are doing well! check out my new brug store-

    • RJHi Kim,
      Sounds like you have a lot of fun stuff happening right now.
      I'm like you and an avid Datura grower too.. If you ever need any tips or would like to share seeds later this year. I'd be happy to share with you.
      Best regards,

    • Spiritjewelz KimHi RJ!

      I feel lucky that I got an older (1920) home last fall. Got to hit a lot of clearance sales for perennials, have them in the ground. The home had a dogwood, a lilac, and two huge bigger than the house, overgrown crepe myrtles. So I didnt have to undo lots of dead stuff. Just some major backyard clean up. And I have a gigantic maple, I tapped and made syrup from.
      I love daturas, saw them in ditches in South Africa, India and grew them in the Middle East. Love them!
      Tennessee is in the midst of a huge Tstorm and rain event as I type. I would love to swap when things bloom and seed! Let me know as things progress!
      Where are you located??
