Nat, welcome to DG, and brugmansia forum. Most brugs are root hardy in our zones. I collected a few and they become habacious perennials for us. Though, I learnt to overwintered some good blooming brugs for more blooms in the season.

Hi All

I'm Mya from Australia...just recently started acquiring brugs...I've got 18 varieties at present...they are all very young still, so haven't got any pictures to show as yet but soon.We are now in our winter,though where I live it's quite tropical, so my brugs should grow all year round...wonderful informative forum...I've spent ages, back reading posts and drooling over your variety of Brugs and pictures...

Hi Y'all I'm in zone 3a (Calgary, Canada), my name is Susan. Would you add me to your list?

Is it possible to grow brugs in my area??? some version, perhaps?
After all, I grow Dats here (Datura inoxia, to be exact - wish I had my camera last year when they were in riotous bloom! My neighbours want me to grow them again, but I couldn't find any inoxia, just metels... siiiiiiiiigh)
I didn't know what brugs were, but They Are Gorgeous!!

Susan, why don't you post your questions in the Brug forum itself. More people visit the main body of the forum. Meanwhile, add your name to the user name list, but to answer you questions. Yes, you can grow them in zone 3a, but you will have to overwinter them indoors or a basement that stays above freezing. Try to get plants that are taken from above the "Y" so you get blooms quicker. Take time to browse through older posts as well. There is a wealth of information in them. When you do take them indoors, don't prune below the "Y". If you can keep from pruning them, you can avoid die-back.
Here's a link to a Canadian Brug seller:

I saw in another forum where someone had put their real name in parenthesis where their town was. Thought that was a good idea! I have since done the same as you see under my name here on this post. Just a thought. Although some people may not wish their first name be known all over DG.

edited to say... Opppsi, I see it was this forum! So you already know about it. Never mind. Have a nice day!

Cindy, I've changed your "real" name from Sydney to Cindy and put Sydney in parentheses.

I live about 120 miles west of where the eye passed over Houston. Under normal circumstances, that is the dry side of a hurricane, especially this far from the eye, but this hurricane was so wide that the projected rainfall for us was 2" - 4" with 30 - 50 mph and gusts of up to 70 mph. A number of atmospheric conditions kept that from happening. We received hot drying wind earlier in the day and evening then nothing. My MIL in Houston, who lives in the west side of Houston, had a neighbor's massive Loblolly Pine fall on her house and puncture roof and ceiling and has extensive water damage in the kitchen, dining room and living room. Other trees littered the yard, driveway and street. My SIL's house weathered the storm, but has tree damage. Both are without power. No generator. No chairsaw. Both essential tools in hurricane prone areas.

Mike confinced me that this is a great place to be. So here I am and I am looking forward to meet all the great garden folks that I know they are here and Mike swears that it is so.

Luzia, Lori, Annette and Eric,
I'm sorry I was late in adding your names to the list. I just got back after spending a week back in California visiting my two sons and attending my younger son's wedding. I was having too much fun. LOL

Luzia, welcome back to Texas and to the Brug Forum. I think you will indeed find fri,endly gardeners here. Gardening in Texas can be a challenge. Even though I had been gardening for ages, I felt like a novice gardener when I started gardening here in Texas. Plumerias are my other great love, too.

Lori, welcome to the Brug Forum. When you have time, look at older threads. You'll find a wealth of great information in them. Searching the forum using keywords makes it easier to hunt for information. You'll also find that soon, one Brug is not enough and when that happens, you are hooked!

Annette, welcome to the Brug Forum. You'll find there are a great many Floridians here. I'm sure they'll be glad to share growing information.

Eric, welcome to the Brug Forum. I hope you'll share some of your hybridizing expertise with us. Many Brug DGers, including me, have asked questions about hybridizing Brugs that have gone unanswered. I want to add that I have 5 of your hybrids: Tequila Sunrise, Sunkissed, Gypsy Queen, Georgia Peach and Audrey Hepburn. The first three are still small cuttings that have yet to bloom. I've had Georgia Peach and Audrey Hepburn for a few years now. Audrey Hepburn is one of my favorites. It helps that I'm rather isolated, but she has been very healthy even when others get attacked by spidermites. She sent roots out the drain holes and in between the pavers while in the greenhouse the first year I had her so she has stayed in the greenhouse all year until early this summer when I ripped her out and planted her outside. I love the shape and form of her flowers. She sets pods easily and since she was in the greenhouse all year long, she bloomed almost year long. I have wondered who her parents are as they aren't included in the Brugmansia Register.

Yes Ma'am, Betty I have. I have brugs and dats scattered all over the yard. Right now I am making the local water company rich. No matter how good the soil or how well mulched they are, they STILL want water...greedy little beggars grin.

We are at present about 12 or 13 inches of rain shy of where we normally are this time of year...multiply that by about 3/4 acres of growing things and you understand why I wish I'd bought stock in the water company LOL(or cry when the bill comes in).

Thanks Tami. I have even added the water retaining crystals to the soil, but when there is no rain (almost a month now) and a lot of hot dry wind, nothing seems to hold as much moisture as these guys seem to want.

We finally got an inch or so of rain last night...yippee, I don't have to water today! Maybe now the ground will be soft enough so I can force out some weeds without uprooting everything around them.grin.

Do the Brugs just bloom in the fall? I see all these pictures and not a bloom have I got yet? I know I am impatient
but if I know for sure when they will bloom maybe I won't be so eager. I have one that blooms in September. Is
that when I should expect them all to bloom?? I know they are very easy to root. I have several starts.

ridesredmule,
While this thread is for posting user names, I'll try to answer you questions. This thread isn't viewed as often as the others. So if you also start a thread, you'll get more information.

When a Brug blooms and how often depends a quite a number of factors:
Whether the plant is a seedling or a mature plant.
If a cutting, whether the cutting came from above the "Y" or below.
How much you fertilize and water your plant and how often.
The species or hybrid cultivar.
Climate.
Temperatures
Humidity
Health of plant
Possibly a few more

In general, Brugs bloom in flushes. Some have distinct flushes with rest periods of 4 - 8 weeks while the plant produces up to a humdred or more buds. Other Brugs produce a few blooms between flushes appearing to have a longer blooming period. All this is dependent upon the frequency and amount of fertilizer applied. Brugs are heavy feeder and need frequent applications of a complete liquid fertilizer, one that includes all the micro-nutrients. Twice a week at full strength wouldn't be unusual. Many DGers have had great success using kenboy's Recipe, not because it's so miraculous, but because a small amount of fertilizer is applied every single day so the Brug doesn't go hungry. They also need lots of water, but the soil should be well draining or the Brugs fall prey to root rot. For most people, Brugs bloom best in the spring and in the fall unless of course you live in southern Florida where they seem to bloom in all seasons. They tend to produce only a few during winter or none at all. Many of the newer cultivars don't seem to mind the heat as much as the older varieties, but generally Brugs don't bloom as often in summer in places where the temperatures soar into the 90s or above. Especially if the humidity is too low.

If the cuttings came from above the "Y", the new plants act as if they are still attached to the mother plant and will continue to produce flowers. Not many of course because of their size, but as they get bigger the number of blooms will increase. If, however, the cuttings came from below the "Y", they will have to go through the vegetative stage an produce a "Y", before they produce flowers. How large they have to get depends on the cultivar. Some produce a "Y" while still under 6' tall, but others can get well over 7' tall before any "Y"s are produced. Fred just mentioned he has a new seedliing 10' tall and it still hasn't produced a "Y". You will have to be patient because they is really nothing you can do, other than provide optimum growing conditions, to get them to bloom earlier.

One last thing. You are in the same plant hardiness one as I am. In our zone, most Brugs are root hardy, but the tops will die down to the ground if left outside in winter. They will re-sprout from the buried portion of the trunk, but will have to go through the vegetative growth cycle all over again and produce a "Y" before they will bloom for you. Some DGers, dig up their Brugs and overwinter them indoors, in a frost-free garage or in a greenhouse. Mine overwinter in a greenhouse. You could also take cuttings from above the "Y" and overwinter the cuttings in buckets of water. You can actually take rather large cuttings. That way you get a big head start the following year.

I hope this helps.

I am glad they root so easily, so I think it won't get hard to get some different kinds.

Thank you all. I'm a newbie here on the garden club site, but had a few noid brugs for many years. I would love to find a couple more(not asking, just thinking out loud). There is a peach or pink with white mixed bloom I really would like to find. When I see it, it reminds me of orange sherbert. If anyone knows where I could find one, I'd love a d-mail though.

No, some members start by asking their Brug questions in this thread rather than starting a new thread in the Brug Forum. I was suggesting starting a thread where the question specifically addresses your Brug needs. This thread is not seen by as many people unless they want to connect a moniker with a name. I hope this is a better explanation. :-)

Hi-
I am new to Dave's Garden and to Brugmansia propagtion but not to Brug love; could you please add me name to list? Also, I have question bout my 2-3 week old brug cuttings that I m starting in dirt rather than water:
While the rest of my cuttings look great (coleous, red sisters, even impatiens- despite the heat), my Brugmansia cuttings are brown and shriveled on the top of the cutting. Several have lost all their leaves, but still have some green on the stem. The cuttings are from a beautiful opens white then turns yellow then pink brug that grew to 10 feet its first year and blooms every 1.5 weeks or so; I keep them in dappled light/shade on the front porch. Any advice? Are the ones without leaves also without hope?
Thanks for you help, Renee

Renee,
Welcome to the Brug Forum. I will gladly try to answer your question. You might also want to start a thread with the same question if you want more than one answer. This thread is just for adding user names and is not seen as frequently as the other threads.

First of all I have a question for you. When you said dirt, did you really mean dirt or were you speaking about potting mix? Even with the humidity Houston normally has, this heat will suck the moisture from the cuttings faster than they can absorb through the small cut at their base. This leads to shriveling and then browning. There is a chance these you currently have may stop dying back and survive long enough to root. Since you have the mother plant, you may want to take more cuttings as insurance. When you take the cuttings, cut off all but the small leaves at the top. If you have a fungicide, spray the cut surface to keep fungi from entering through the cut. To help slow down loss of moisture, cover the cutting with anything clear. Empty 2 liter soda bottles make great mini-greenhouses for cuttings. Keep the soil slightly moist but not soaking wet until you get good strong growth. Unless the cuttings are large or are very thick, start the cuttings in small 4" pots or smaller. The cuttings are less likely to rot.

Brugs grow and bloom best if they receive direct morning sunlight. The only exceptions are some of the variegated Brugs whose leaves show a lot of white. Those may burn in direct sunlight. Although Brugs are said to bloom in flushes with a rest period in-between the flushes, the flushes in some Brugs last a number of weeks and they tend to produce a few isolated blooms so the flushes appear to be closer.

I'm in the same boat as Crit, new Brug lover. I saw it in a magazine a year ago and then in person this year at a local nursery. I got the opportunity to snag some cuttings in the trading forums and now I have 4 cuttings. My mom grows them too and gave me some advice on them.

I think they are addictive though because I've made a wish list in my garden book.

Okie Dokie. My real name is Patti. I got my user name because a friend of mine use to call me Critter Woman because of all the house and farm animals I had. My kids and I use to show registered cattle and we did bucket calves as well. We had plenty of inside critters, but no cats. Bunnies, guinea pigs, hamsters, etc.

My name eventually got shortened to Crit-R ... then down to Crit. So that is my story and I'm sticking to it. :-)

An adult friend of mine gave me the nickname. All of our cattle were gentle and when my ex-H and I divorced 10 years ago, nearly the whole herd were hand raised show cattle. Of course they all had names and I could tell them all apart even though they were all solid red or solid black. LOL

Bucket calves are the same as bottle calves, only you feed them with a bucket that has a nipple instead of a bottle with nipple. The kids and I raised a new batch every 6 months. We would sell them just before they hit the 600 lb mark then start over again. :-) Another bunch of hand raised cattle.

People use to love to buy my bulls because they were all so gentle. Even the ones that I didn't show I halter broke so they would be handle-able. Great asset!!!
