These are my 3 big NOID brugs. The scent coming in the house is almost intoxicating! One has branches hanging way down. I don't think I am going to overwinter these 3 any more. They are nothing special, and I'm tired of lugging them in. I have others (named) that are much prettier than these. But, they still smell good. Green Grin!

Anna I'm with you. When my Brugs get too big and heavy to move around easily, I take cuttings in the fall and overwinter small plants (or sometimes the cuttings just stay in water over the winter . . . ). This way I never lose my favorites, but don't have to deal with huge plants that need winter protection.

If you start some cuttings from those babies in the fall, you'll have blooming size plants again by this time next year.

mkb, that "Explosion" is gorgeous. I love the doubles. Would you have any cuttings to spare in the fall? The only ones I'd have to trade would be Sexy Lady, Susanne, or Creamsickle, and I imagine those are pretty common now?

@AnnaZ - what color are those blooms on your middle NOID? Are you taking any cuttings from her?
What would YOU attempt if you KNEW you wouldn't fail?

The 2 in the tan pots are the same. I took a few cuttings. The pink one in the middle I threw out. It has not been a vigorous bloomer. Here you either amaze me or die. Rolling on the floor laughing I gave it several years and I was not impressed any of them. Sexy Lady now resides in that pot........a HUGE pink bloom.

I was in my neighbor's yard the other day and there was a really divine scent coming from SOMEwhere, but we couldn't discern the origin. The only plant that was blooming was this beautiful shrub about 10 ft. tall with flowers dropping from draping limbs--much like an angel trumpet. However, the flowers were solid red, about 3-4 in. long, and emitted no scent! The neighbor said it was called a Christmas bell plant, but the only ones I could find with that name were ground plants--like irises. Also, the flowers petals were much like an engine turbine with overlapping leaves that flared out like a skirt and the flowers never opened up like a fuchsia does. Does anybody know what the name of this is? She said I could just stick the cutting into the ground, give it some water, & it would root--but not yet since I only planted it yesterday.

If anybody can help me with this, I would certainly appreciate it. We are just outside of Houston, TX, and still have 80+ degree weather with no rain.

Marcia, there is a red brugmansia - could it have been this?


Btw they only release their scent in the dark, as do most brugmansias.
