The Brugmansia's are amazing. I have about 30 cuttings all going and so many are already putting on flower buds. They are beautiful and I love the fragrance in the evening sitting outside.

The is a great tree, Jeff. Little bit of a prune would make this into a really nice form tree and give more blooms. This of course is a personal preference and I should not push it on you. Do not mean to.

Thanks for the pic. Now I see how nice the whole tree is. As Rick say's after it is done blooming pruning will make for more branches to bloom on. You can even use the scions to graft with if you choose. As you see we like to play with our trees

That would be great...I have no problem with pruning..I would probably need some direction with that after the blooms..Grafting I have never done but would love to try of course again with direction..I'm sure I'm going to need help in those departments...I can make it grow but at this point that's about it....Thank you all..

Here is a bit about me...I am originally from Michigan ...We just moved to Florida in December.. I worked in the auto industry for 30 plus yrs and have now earned my way here..When we purchased this house it was pretty much an open slate..Nothing but a couple banana trees in the very back yard...So all of these plants are new to me..I'm used to growing Peonies,Looking at large Red Oaks, and freezing my rear end off... Sticking tongue out

All you need is shade. You have the humidity. In the high country my peonies never bloom but come back every spring.
