Finally moved this gifted cutie to a extra large pot back in late spring. After I received lots of good advice regarding feeding, mine has been non-stop blooming since the end of Sept. What beautiful cheery yellow blooms that turn to an orange sherbet color with age. Icing on the cake? Incredible wafting nighttime fragrance: to my nose, a lily-like scent with citrus undertones.
Talking about Brugmansia (Brugmansia arborea) on May 27, Zazinnia wrote:

Easy to root. Cut branches in fall and place in a bucket of water over winter. Roots will form, and then I plant out in the garden in spring. A friend puts hers directly in the dirt beside her water heater and shelters with an old window.

This brug has lovely, very long, pendant blossoms with a wonderful fragrance that open pure white, then are suffused with a pale golden color as they mature. An unusual feature of the leaves is a velvety texture. I'm wondering whether that's what seems to make them a little less attractive to spider mites than other brugs.
Talking about Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Monster White') on August 22, dyzzypyxxy wrote:

A very vigorous cultivar with sturdy growth habit, and large, pure white flowers with a lovely clean fragrance. As with most brugs, very easy to start from cuttings, and my first start of 'Monster White' grew from a 10in. cutting to a 5ft. shrub in less than 6 months. Be prepared to prune this one to keep it in bounds if you are growing in a container (as I do). The nematodes in our soil here in Florida just love brugs, so if planted in the ground, they last about a year. But most brugs also love to be pruned, and respond by putting on extravagant flushes of new growth and blooms. Feed brugs with soluble fertilizer, enhanced with magnesium at least once a month - about a teaspoon of Epsom salts per gallon of water seems to work great.
Talking about Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Charles Grimaldi') on August 22, dyzzypyxxy wrote:

I love the color and scent of 'Charles Grimaldi,' but I must say that it is the least vigorous of all the brugs I've grown. All brugs are insect magnets and especially attractive to spider mites, but this one seems to decline the most quickly of all, and takes longest to rebound as well.
Talking about Angel's Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Cassie's Curls') on April 17, Evan wrote:

I have a brugmansia. Cassie's curls. Angel's trumpet. I live in San Antonio. My yard faces west-south-west. A big oak tree blocks late afternoon sun. I am looking for advice on where to plant this. In a container? Hanging basket? My gardens are full and really don't have room. The plant arrived in the mail after our perennials came back and we added new so we're pretty full. Would appreciate any suggestions. I'm inexperienced with this plant. Thanks.
Talking about Angel's Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Whitney') on March 5, gone2seed wrote:

This cultivar is unusual in that it has produced single, double, and shredded flowers on the same plant and often at the same time. It has done this during the three-year trial period. I would normally expect a new hybrid to settle down to one type of flower after the first couple of flushes but so far, this plant is an exception. The plant may well settle later to a nice double/triple.

Sarah "S" is a cross of El Dorado and Jinny Lind.The blooms have a nice, baby powder fragrance and last for several days.The plant has been pest and disease free here for over two years.
Talking about Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Karoline') on July 31, gone2seed wrote:

Kaitlyn and Karoline are pod siblings as well as being sisters in real life.They are an inbred downline (the plants,not the sisters) to get blooms as close to their parent Rothkirch as possible.I think they come pretty close.
Both are beautiful Aureas.

Of all the hybrids produced at Country Garden, Jinny Lind tops the list.She roots easily,stays at a reasonable size,sets pods easily and smells great.Good color and plenty of blooms.

This brug is supposed to have a nice scent, but I couldn't notice any scent at all. They may need to be more mature before the scent is noticeable. The blooms are huge and have a beautiful soft yellow color.

They don't like to dry out, but mine was planted in the ground in amended clay and required very little supplemental watering, even during a very hot and droughty summer. It was a small cutting that grew fast and bloomed beautifully starting in late summer. Unfortunately, I let it dry out too much over winter, which killed it, so I'll be trying it again with better winter care.

Very fragrant flowers. My first double.

Very pretty large pink flowers.
Talking about Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Becca Lynn') on October 8, Joy wrote:

Becca Lynn is an extremely fragrant brug. The scent reminds me of baby powder, one of my favorite fragrances. A reliable bloomer giving many flushes each season. The plant is packed with blooms. However, of all the different Brugs I grow or have grown, Becca Lynn seems to have more problems with spider mites than any of the others.
Talking about Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Naughty Nick') on September 22, Joy wrote:

Naughty Nick likes to get tall before it will bloom. Mine has got to be 12' or taller (in a pot) and is just now getting some buds.
Talking about Angel's Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Shredded White') on August 2, Joy wrote:

In my climate Shredded White is the longest blooming brug I grow. It starts blooming in May and continues until the first frost. Blooms start out yellow, then turn white.

This was the first brug I ever grew and it's always been one of my favorites.
