I put these brugmansias in a storage room almost a month ago for winter storage. They have had no water and practically no sun. Now one has a bloom, although very pale.

This one is planted outside and has several blooms about to open. Both pictures taken today. New Years Day.

Wow, that is crazy to have the bloom inside, and I can hardly believe you have them green and blooming outside! You must not have had any freezes? Mine are all in the greenhouse, still full of leaves, but no blooms right now. They wouldn't make it outside. We've been down to 12 degrees so far.

Picture from today. January 10. Unusual for this area.

Michael, I bet the aroma this time of year is extra nice. I stopped growing them a few years ago got tired of fighting spiders. But I sure do miss the wonderful aroma.

I have a very poor sense of smell so I don't even try. They are definitely spider mite and white fly magnets in my greenhouse but this year it has been minimal. I have several small ones in there that I am rooting over the winter.
