Plant girl...I live in zone 4, too, and I grow them both in containers and in ground. If in ground, you just either dig them up (big plants/big work!) or take nice cuttings to root for next years plants. They're easy to overwinter if you've a basement or cool room. I've even overwintered small plants in my living room. Oh oh...now you're in trouble! The obsession begins!

How come no one has used the term Angel Trumpet tree descibing the Brugs? They are truly beautiful, last year I only had one but finally have got several rooted starts from it this year. They smell so heavenly too, my big one is deep yellow (don't know it's name), truly a showstopper. last year it had over 100 blooms on it at one time and it's only 3 years old.

Azalea-I don't use the term Angelstrumpets simply because of the confusion most people have with the latin names much less the common names. Devils trumpets are Datura and Angelstrumpets are Brugmansia-but I always call Brugmansia Brugmansia and Datura weeds. Lol, but seriously, many here adore Datura so whichever you like is fine in here or if you like them both as some do as well its good to seed new faces in here.

Yes Brug, I know what it is but there was a time only a few months ago that I didn't. Just thught it would help to be a little more descriptive for those that don't know.

PS - Today I put my first "leaf" in a jar of water, thanks to you - wish me luck!!

Brugmansia ... in the 30 yrs of gardening i've done, my preference is using latin name, rather than common name to specifically identify a plant. common names are sometimes too confusing.
although new to the site, i have taken the liberty of reading some of the posting on several threads. so far, i have not found an answer to the question lingering in my head. a friend introduce me to the brug & dat for the first time early part of this year, by giving me a 6" rooted cutting of a pink brug. when i transplanted the brug, i added some superphosphate with the potting soil. todate, the plant has grown to 4' high, and a side shoot of 3' high and more side shoots coming up. i feed the brug w/ 15-30-15 fertilizer once a week.
i am in zone 8, the upper desert of So. Calif. the questions is... when will the pink brug bloom?
thanks... ma vie rose

ps: sorry i do not know what specific variety the pink brug is, till i see the flower.

hmmm, lingering...questions...Brugmansia live for over 70 years...Datura live for 1-3 years. Brugmansia rarely if ever self seed while Datura self seed like crazzy. Brugmansia have smooth round to long slender greenpod looking seedpods...need we go on?

BTW, Brug - my leaf died!!

I guess by now Plant-Girl-Maine should have a pretty good idea of what a Brug is but I'm surprised no one has put up a link with pics - there are several bet i am not smart enough to do it.
