I got this plant a few years back from Logee's, This is by far the prettiest pink I have. This plant blooms in 2 waves every year, each wave of blooms covers the entire plant to where you can't see the trunk. I am very happy with it and recommend it to everyone. The perfume the blossoms release is heavenly, and can be smelled 3-4 houses down in the cool night breeze, i've got a lot of compliments about my brugs, I keep them in the front yard for everyone to enjoy.

Although our extreme heat and humidity wilts this lovely flower during hot summer days, it is my all time favorite brugmansia. When in full bloom the plant reminds me of pink and white bells. Just beautiful!

I bought my pink Brug from a grower near Gainesville, Florida this Spring, who told me it would survive in the ground here in Northcentral Florida, zone 8b. It had no blooms at the time I bought it, but was labeled "Pink," so I was very disappointed when the first bloom was white. But the next day I found that first bloom had turned a deep pink, and the second new bloom was white! The contrast was quite beautiful and the blooms were spectacularly long, perhaps over 12 inches. That was in May, and now in August the plant is in the ground, being heavily fed and watered, and puts out many blooms all at once about every three weeks or so. The now shorter blooms open a uniform creamy color with pale pink tips, quite attractive, but not as dramatic as the earlier, longer and more contrastin... read more

Though not to bloom so often as other of my pink brugs, Equadore Pink is my favourite.
According to season, conditions, and requirements Equadore blooms change.
Colours have varied from deepest pink to near white and long and slender to more compact.
