Tig,
You know whats funny, I got hooked on Brugmansia based on the fragrance first and the flower last. You people love the pictures enough to get hooked though. Incredible. Actually, the nursery I visited had several fully grown Brugmansia trees with blooms all over them. I told them I liked fragrant flowers and that they were unusuall, but not worth gambling on. Thats how I got my first Brugmansia, the Jamaican was given to me as a gift. The first blooms fragrance was the last straw I could handle. Sure, there are hundreds of beautiful Brugmansia out there, but the best to me are the ones loaded down to the hilt with sweet highly fragrant Brugmansia. Now, I must confess, I like to have color with the fragrance. I have only kept one of my own white hybrides as the fragrance on that hybrid was so much stronger than anything else I had grown. And yes, I do have a few whites like the Cypress Garden, Versicolor alba, aurea white, and an old victorian white suaveolens. But as for my own white hybrids, I don't really bother with them that much excepting to perhaps get a seed pod or two from them if I think they might have some other desireable characteristic or hidden color that may come out in another cross.

I bought one because I liked the look of it and didn't know about the fragance. It bloomed that summer and I still hadn't noticed the fragance. We brought it inside and put it down in the laundry tub and left it there to check for insects. We went out and came back later that night. When we came in we were amazed at the fragance that was wafting thru the house. Didn't know what it was at first so went down to the laundry room and realized it was the brugsmansia and the air exchange system was above it and was sending the scent thru the house. If I didn't have to lug them inside in the fall I would grow more of them just for the fragance.

Begonia,
Good point about the fragrance. Fragrance does vary from cultivar to cultivar and some border on almost non existant fragrance. In any case, the fragrance is most powerful at night, but it can be noticed during the day as well with some cultivars. Still, the best fragrance will always be had when the sun has gone down or is going down. Another reason why I have a few whites in the yard, I like the contrast the whites make at night. Although, during the day, I much prefer to look at cultivars in color. My favorite for fragrance-Jamaican, Dr.Sues and Solid Gold. Yes, my favorites are always going to be in my yard no matter how old they get. In fact, I have 3 Jamaican in the yard, 6 or so Dr.Sues and just one Solid Gold. The frosty pink which I think is one of the ones that has no fragrance or almost none...I have 2 of those in the yard.
Enough rambling,

prain: Brugs are not really hardy around Nanaimo unless you live on/above the ocean in a very warm spot. You still must cut them back, cover with styrofoam chips ( white only), cover with a bucket and fish compost. I overwintered a sanguinea last winter, it's doing great. I overwintered a x candida white and a charles grimaldi also. They are coming along but not nearly as large as the ones I kept in the greenhouse. The sanguinea was in an extremely sheltered spot, a microclimate zone 9.

Brugmansia: A question for you. Do you have any pix of x flava besides the one from native habitat ( picture on the cover of engelstrompeten ) I'm pretty sure I have one. I've had it for 5 years and it has never bloomed. It has about 7 buds on it now and one is almost ready to open. It has huge dark green thickish leaves, the baby leaves look like sanguineas sort of, but the large leaves don't look like any brug I've ever seen. The buds are much darker green and fatter. From all of the research I have done, I don't know what else it could be. Any help would be appreciated.

Good to see you in here. With that said, I do have Engelstrompeten and there are a few different pictures of flava hybrids in that book. I do not have any flava hybrides though and the few sanguinea seedlings I have have never bloomed. Please do post a picture of the flava you have when it comes into bloom. Sounds like you have a nice assortment of Brugmansia Brugcrazy. Do you hybridize Brugmansia as a hobby as well or any other plants? As long as were talking about Native Habitat, have you seen any of their recent hybrides? I never remember to take my camera with me when I go down there. I would probably beg you for half of your Brugmansia list Brugcrazy as it is obvious you are a bit crazzier than I am, but I have gotten to the point where I feel as if I have enough to work with. My primary interests are the aurea hybrids and trying to create just a few hybrids that are descent for my children. So far, it looks like its going to take a few more years to get what I am after. That and a whole lot of luck. Of course, I must be honest and say that each year new hybrides come out that I just can't say no to. Guess thats the way of things when your crazzy about Brugmansia. Wonderful to have you here Brugcrazzy. I look forward to your insights and knowledge.

How lucky we are. We all have different taste in our plants but we all have a lot in common also. The links are great. Lucky to have these wonderful computers to share these differences and commonalities(NEW WORD)in the plant world. Brugmansia,we do need to work on a website with smell. We never would leave the web site then. I can hardly leave now with only sight. Jim
