First Brug bud of the season


I am now seeing my first brugmansia bud of the season. It's 'Cypress Gardens'. Hopefully all my other brugs will follow suit, and soon.

SOOOO pretty, you made my day, thank you.

I moved my brugs outside yesterday (they barely survived winter storage) and some other plants, the rest I'll move outside (including house plants ) on weekend.

Please post pics of next bloom and the one after that, let me enjoy their beauty, I wish I can smell it too.

My poor brugs, hope they will do better now and give me lots of blooms, can see little green now.

Thanks everyone!
Saba, your brugs are HUGE. Wow, must be something when they bloom. And you have plenty too. Do you have many varieties of color?

Yes, when they all bloom it really is a show, and the fragrance, wow.

You can view some of my brugs here: How about 2014 Brugmansia show off

and the variety: Brugs_ pre-arrange swap ?

and here, ordered and received: http://www.plantswap.net/forum/membe...dered-02-2015/ but didn't have time to start yet , maybe next week.

How about yours?

Saba, you have a beautiful collection of brugs!

Most of my brugs are potted except for one. I don't have too many though. I have 'Pink Beauty', 'Cotton Candy', 'Cypress Gardens', maybe 'Flamenco' and a few others. I also have 'Pink Beauty' in ground and comes back every year.

Thanks flowerdazed, I have been addicted to brugs for years, since I saw it bloom at garden shop long, long time ago.

Any new/different blooms? Please post pic.

Soil is still to cold, pot them and keep indoors till nights get warmer.
