Hey KHT - where did this forum come from?! ha! It wasn't here Friday and voila! Here 'tis today! (Haven't been on all weekend) I have a dilemma...It's been downright cold here in SW Wisconsin, and the brugs haven't really 'taken off'...so, I'm not sure which one(s) I'll want to enter by July 1...what to do?

trish, yes i received my first cuttings and babies grown from seed the first week of june last year...had only put one of those in the ground...AND apparently at least one was misnamed (seed grown, did it "revert"?) and the orange may be a versicolor as the trader told me, but the brugs page says versicolors don't have serrated leaves, and this one is sure serrated!! and the one i bought at the flea market was called "orange"... and a local trader told me she received a "juter orange" that bloomed pink!!

kht
funny story! I was at a nursery by Erin's grandmother last month, where I found the P. suberosa. Anyway they had P. vitifolia marked 'Blue Passion' vines, was told that the way they came to them and will be sold as 'Blue Passion' vines.

01/01/02?? Great!! Have you been busy with cuttings?

I remember last year when I purchased the so called vine marked as '10" vine', I wasn't sure if it was a P. cocinea or P. vitifolia. I called the store up, asked for the name of the supplier, called the supplier up, drove out 15 miles from work to have them ID it for me. I purchased another one from the supplier, that is how you endup with the #3 can.
The lady and her hubby were so nice, I bought $45 bucks worth of passion vines from them! Only a few of her passion vines were tagged, but she knew everyone of them, she even told me of the flower color, growth habits, etc.
Hmmm, I should take a long lunch break next week and pay them a visit, and I'll try to remember to take my camera with me.

Karma- so am I to understand you are starting a Brugmansia nursery? Congratulations, wish I had the know how of starting a buisness and running it and I might be there with you. Send me a link or a list of what you are going to be selling when you get it up and running. I have thought that having a nursery would make it a lot more affordable to grow Brugmansia I love so dearly, but I lack the knowledge and the money to put into it as one really must have several heated greenhouses to make a go of it with Brugmansia unless one lives further south in Florida.
Keep up the good work KT,

KHT, why would you have to leave DG? the market growers are here. I have the bug too, have spent the last 6 years typing reports at home, looking out windows. am starting some things rooting, if all goes well i will sell them at the flea market or something. brugmansia, i think that is a good way to get your feet wet, and brugs go kinda dormant in the winter anyway, don't they? rome wasn't built in a day and as many brugs as you apparently have you should be able to work into a market at your own pace, brugs certainly are not common around here. i am trying antique roses, will try some brugs but that is iffy with my small number of small plants, and a couple of other things that are kind of unusual and seem easy to me.
With this kind of addiction it is only smart to try to get some of the money you spend back, or make some to reinvest in more plants.

First hybrids of the new year are blooming. Nothing special, just 2 white type suaveolens x versicolor looking hybrids from my frosty white. Tendrils are about 1 1/2 inches long, flower does not flare that much and both are a bit smaller than the frosty pink. Perhaps good to hybridize with, but nothing special beyond that. All I can say is that they are the earliest bloomers and have pink hidden in there somewhere, give them another 24 hours before I give up on any color appearing as it sometimes takes 48 hours before the true color shows. As for going to the flea market, sounds like a good idea. Perhaps take some pictures with me of the plants so people can know what kind of blooms they are getting. Of course the fragrance can't be had in a picture and thats what attracts me to Brugmansia more than anything. Hopeing and wishing for a just one out of last years hybrid batch that I like.
Arlene, Brugmansia go dormant in the winter here some years and some years in this part of florida they don't. Depends on the year. After they get a certain size, its easy to keep them flowering much of the year even this far north in Florida. Of course the Brugmansia I have planted further south in Florida do much better and rarely freeze back so I can hybridize much better just a few hours south of here. It is desireable to keep a few indoors or in a greenhouse for seed setting though just to be on the safe side in Florida.
KT,
There are more and more nurseries specializing in Brugmansia and these nurseries are growing very rapidly so I would think that you might do fairly well if you could get an internet based buisness so your clients were not restricted to the locals. Pictures and fragrance are what sells these babies, so of course it would be advisable to have a few mother plants in full bloom of each type to attract potential buyers when the time comes to start your own buisness. Wishing you much luck,
Brugmansia

Karma, I have no idea where you created this idea that commercial folks aren't welcome here. That's just not true, and you suggesting that it is makes DG look bad.

Thanks, Karma. I didn't think you'd be able to find that post, because I know I wouldn't say anything like that.

I am pretty picky about folks who misquote me.

I'm sorry Arlene. Due to the climate there is no flowers on my Brugmanisa sanguinea yet. It was sown in march last year and it reached approximately 7-8 feet before the winter arrived. This spring I sowed several species and hybrids (mix). Hopefully some ot them will flower this year.

you bet!! It's not for the largest plant, it's for the best picture of your baby, right?? :) I'm just having a blast getting out there every morning and talking to Sammy (my salmon, first one and biggest) I cut her head off the other day, and she's not pouting anymore. I moved her into more sun last week or so, and she pouted everyday, and I've babied her almost as much as my grandbaby!!

Of course I'm singing to her!!! Where I first put her, there wasn't as much sun as I thought, but she has shade from the afternoon sun. She really likes it there, she is just an attention hog!!! Oh, and she said to tell y'all that she loves the fish emulsion!!! I wish I could come up there too! I'd take everything Pebble left behind (ummm...Pebble, what were you thinking, leaving plants! )
