Gardeners' Notes:

Positive TrixieM On Jan 21, 2005, TrixieM from Mc Call Creek, MS wrote:

This brugmansia versicolor is said to apparently be self-pollinating, and it appears that most flowers produce a seedpod. It is a prolific bloomer, and according to "Brugmansia, and Dautura Angel Trumpets and Thorn Apples", by Ulrike and Hans-Georg Preissel, it was "selected" by Lee R. Rathbun from gardens in Florida.

One of my favorite brugs - huge, long, white and very fragrant flowers on a compact plant. Very bug-resistant for a brug. Blooms in flushes about once every 4 to 6 weeks.

This lovely plant has pure white blooms that turn a pretty peachy color after about the third day.

Flowers at an early stage. Repeat blooming. Perfect for a pot. Very nice Brugmansia to add to the collection.

Large long fragrant white bells. Blooms often and well. A very reliable and rewarding Brugmansia to grow.
