Last year I bought 2 brugmansias, one yellow in flower and one white that was quite small and didn’t flower.

I over wintered them both, took cuttings of the yellow one that are growing away nicely.

Here is the yellow one

And here is the white one with its 1st ever flower

The perfume is wonderful, I’m very pleased with myself ?

Just had to post this, this is the ‘white’ one, today …. Strange……

They really are great, spectacular plants! And you've been successful with cuttings...brilliant

Thanks Paul, I read somewhere that you just stick the cuttings in water and pot them up in spring, they rooted and grew leaves really quick, the main plants were put in the spare room over winter and occasionally watered.

I have been tempted to invest in Brugs. I saw a great planting border surrounded by clipped lawn. The border was just Lobularia maritima 'Wonderland White' (white alyssum) with 7 Brugs of different colours growing tall out of them and it looked superb. I did not catch the scent alas as it was windy.

Booboosmum - what did you do to overwinter?

Kilder, I brought them indoors and put them in the spare room, occasionally watering them, that's it! I took cuttings of the yellow one but its not doing so well as the now pink one. I planted up the cuttings and put them in a flower bed but it seems to me that they don't flower until they're quite large.
