This is my first year with BRUGMANSIA. I planted two about 2 feet east of my home (near the roof overhang. They grew very well during the first year despite my poor care.

I assume the frost got them this winter (zone 9) Rancho Cordova, Sacramento county, California

I have this plant grown from a cutting taken in San Francisco, where it is evergreen. In my location, we get frost a few nights during the year, and the plant looses all its leaves at the first frost. I cut it back to about one foot after the frost damage, and it grows back rapidly to about 6 to 8 feet in the Spring. It blooms in late Spring or early summer, and often again in the fall.
