I've seen a few pics. of folks who keep one in a hanging basket. I could probably manage that Big Grin

Which ones are best suited for a hanging basket?

I have seen several "Orange Sunshine" grown in large hanging baskets but it was prone to disease

Maybe that's why I haven't seen it around.

Lee, You might try this one by Logee's: http://www.logees.com/Angels-Trumpet-Angels-Summer-Dream-ppa...

But remember, Brugs have some pretty large root systems and hanging baskets and pots are fairly shallow. You will end up having to repot more often and/or taking cuttings to start new pots.

I like that one!! I'll see if I can find seeds on e-bay for it. Logees wants a $200 minimum order to ship to Canada Glare

That's rather steep. Have you tried buying from nurseries in Canada? However, if nights are freezing, I would wait until spring when all danger of frost is over, before placing an order.
