Brugmansia

Postby tam » Sat Feb 23, 2013 7:28 pm

A friend of mine has a Brugmansia. The first flowering was this lovely pink.

The next flush of flowers has white amongst them.

Is this a normal occurance?
Thanks

Commonly known as sporting but I've never known a Brugsmansia to do this.....very interesting
The other thing this is classified as a poisonous plant. Great photography too......
Don't throw it away.....someone might be able to use it........

My brug. flowers always open white and develop the colour over a day or so - somewhat like hibiscus mutabilis ( 'Rose of Sharon' in Qld. :D ), but over a longer period.

Brugmansia is a genus of seven species of flowering plants in the family Solanaceae. Their large, fragrant flowers give them their common name of angel's trumpets, a name sometimes used for the closely related genus Datura. Brugmansia are woody trees or shrubs, with pendulous, not erect, flowers, that have no spines on their fruit. Datura species are herbaceous bushes with erect (not pendulous) flowers, and most have spines on their fruit. :wink:

The 3rd flowering is yellow.

I definately want a piece of this. It will be a surprise everytime it flowers if it stays true.

Lovely abwal but the plant I am showing doesn't change colour like yours.

Could it have been grafted at some time, Tam?

I have grown five brugmansias from seed and I have a whole bunch more of germinated seed. Id like to know how old they have to be to flower and also if you've bought as a plant, how much it costs. I

Many thanks
