I know that there are some that prefer cooler & not as much sun, I wonder if u are trying those in you're hot dry? Climate. You'd have to know the variety to know. But in pots it wouldn't matter because you could easily change growing conditions, I'd surely give it a try @AugustaHawkins gotta have some brug blooms in your life!
@tinaaune Really no idea of variety, but it definitely prefers hot & humid. It thrives in Houston summers but goes dormant even in their mild winters. My sister just pulls it out of the ground and winters the “dead stick” in her garage. I’m in North Texas which is hot but not nearly as humid and winters alternate between freezes and mild temps. The soil in Houston tends to be more acidic. She’s given me some of her dormant stalks but they never take in my yard.
Oh my goodness! I have 3 more buds, but are a lonnng way away from blooms! Yours will be amazing! I just can't believe that the stems can support those big flowers! Whaaaaat?!? Frost?!? Noooo, too soon! I have faith in yours! 😉
Oh how pretty Tina. Its crazy but every season the blooms are slightly different in color. Some are an ombre yellow other seasons they look more orange. U will see what i mean. Thanks for posting i enjoyed ur updated pics. 😍
Hey Kristin I'm excited to show u this!! Look buds, now the question is will they develop before frost? Probably not but I'm still excited about all the healthy growth they've put on this season. Thanks again🤗 @txgardener #brugmansia #angeltrumpet #plantswap
Yes I have three very large pots so I'm contemplating just bringing in cuttings or all the pots, was Trying to reduce my workload when it comes to overwintering but u know how that usually goes @gjones
Oh Wow Tina! They look fantastic. So glad they produced flowers for u this year. I have mine in the ground. I usually cut mine back b4 winter. Taking cuttings as well. Makes it easier to wrap the base with blankets if we have freezing temps.
