#bettymarshal #angelstrumpet #brugmansia #brug #white yep! She's a blooming too! She's sort of an enigma, she's a cutting from my earlier posted Betty and for some strange reason this one only gets to about 3ft. Tall! The mother plant gets to at least 6ft.! 🤔🤷

comment

@terrimclaughlin no I didn't, these are kept in the garage through winter, I bring these out in April sometime (depending on weather), they lose all the leaves they had in the garage and start new ones, which is what they have now, once they develop one leaf you can start fertilizing them! I've had these for quite a few years now!💘😍

comment

@cyndi mine are all in pots because they won't make it thru my winters. From what I've read they can actually be invasive if you can plant them in the ground and leave them. They are much more manageable in a pot , you just have to root cut them every year to keep them in a manageable size pot. If you want it at ground level you could bury the pot.need any more info , let me know!💘😍

5w
comment
ShelleySnyder

@cyndi yes you want a big pot! 5gal. Or bigger! They come in white, yellow, pink (light), shades therein. If you find a purple on it is a datura not brugmansia!! They don't smell nearly as good! So unless you are absolutely crazy about the flower don't bother with a datura
