One of the fastest growers I have, it grew to well over 6 feet tall in a matter of only 4 months from an 8 inch cutting!!! Loaded with buds, the scent is glorious! Mine was NOT bothered by pests at all, not even caterpillars this year.


An easy one to root and well worth it.

Beautiful flowers with nice tendrils and a very pleasant fragrance. Started off growing very well this spring but has subsequently been attacked repeatedly by caterpillars, cucumber beetles, and other insects. By far the biggest bug magnet of all my brugs. I still have not decided if it's worth the trouble or not.

It may be pretty, but it's the biggest bug magnet I have. Be prepared to use an arsenal of sprays. I won't grow it again.

Great Fragrance and color. Long tendrils. Great brug for the collection.

Lovely Brugmansia. Strong grower and good bloomer even in winter in my cool glasshouse. Good fragrance, also.
