If my Versicolor Peach looks identical to Frosty Pink, then I guess it's FP. I'm learning so much about the brugs here. I received the v. Peach in a trade and have had Frosty Pink for 2 years. I know it's Frosty Pink since I posted a picture and most everyone agreed.
It's not the first misnamed one, I thought Jutner Orange was Candida Yellow for three years, lol.
Guess I need to go see what Le Bon has left!!!

Versicolor peach is one of my favorite versicolors...course I have one of my own that is more of an aurea/candida looking flower type...versicolor seed pods though. One of my hybrids thats been growing on me-course its mine and thats half of why I like it so much. It looks like an versicolor with the top cut off and the flower shoved back into the calyx...hence aurea looking or candida looking as the long thin piece between the calyx and the belled bottom is totally missing. Side ribs are white while the sides themselves are salmon to orange and occassionally more of a peach. My ohh my are is it fertile both ways and an early bloomer to boot. I will be posting one of its seed pods here shortly. I think its impressive as I have it next to another aurea x versicolor looking hybrid seedpod in the picture. Well, lets just wait until I can post the pictures. Suffice it to say that the end tip of the one seedpod begins where the other is just starting...Still, I had another seedpod that was impressive to me for other reasons that has since departed...wishing I had of gotten a picture of that seedpod.

Cala, i am in same boat..., brugs are so easy to be misnamed, none of the first 3 i got were what i was told they were. i have 4 FPs 5 feet tall or so, and 2 jutner oranges 5-6+ feet next to each... had no clue. my V peach should open tonight or tomorrow, i am going to send you a piece of that. i am fairly sure of the id on that one! don't place an order yet...

Brugmansia, you really know how to hurt a Brug luster LOL.
I have been banging my head ( and the heads of and Liz and Brugcrazy I might add) trying to land some stock from nurseries and you have some dying in water. The indignity of it all.

AAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!! Cala, my versi peach opened and it looks like FROSTY... the leaves are different, though, i am wondering if we both have insignis pink????????? having never seen a known insignis pink before, this is a guess, but i think they look pretty similar. see if the leaves on your "V peach are much smoother rather than ruffly", let me know sometime!!!!

I have boucoups of Jutner Orange and a white that I thought was sauveolens but may not be (at least it's white, I do know that). Send me an email if you want some of them. These are rooted cuttings, about a foot high.

Tig I have Unnamed white,unnamed pink(the one's I sent to you) Unnamed yellow,Dr Suess (that I got from you,thank-you),the rest are all small cuttings :Enchanted -double white,Issabella,Peaches and Cream (thanks to Arlene),coral glow,and Sanguinia(which looks terrible).There are cuttings out there that are unnamed,people who sent them had no Idea of the color or name.And I have 6 hybrid seedlings.So you see I don't have much in the way of brugs to trade.BUT I will trade stuff from my web site at http://pages.zdnet.com/lakreflect/lakesidereflections/ Just go to the plant trades page,also,my peacocks just shed their tails(they do that every August) and I would trade white or the normal peacock feathers.I know that sounds strange but everyone who visits wants peacock feathers.They look cool in a vase.Thought I'd take a chance that someone might be interested.
