Brugmansia Blooming

To my utter delight, the brugmansia that I just put in on Monday is already opening its big bell-shaped blossoms. They are quite literally unfurling or untwisting to reveal their shape. What is intriguing me most are the wispy tails on the points of the star-like petals. They remind me of a Georgia O'Keefe painting.

I am going to have so much fun watching my first brugmansia go through its debut, as this is the very first time it has ever bloomed according to my friend, Kathy, that raised it and nurtured it for the past two years.

It seems extremely happy in its new home. I did have to stake it up today because the branch with all the blossoms on it had begun to bow down. No problem. I have lots of spare stakes around and one fit the bill.

  1. How exciting, a much anticipated bloom for you and your friend. Can't wait to see pics when it fully opens.

  2. What a beautiful, beautiful bloom, Cindy. No wonder it was so anticipated. :)

  3. Cindy, I am jealous. They are so beautiful.

  4. How lovely - you must be well pleased.

  5. One of mine is blooming now, too! I've had them for a couple of years now and enjoy them so much. They're worth the trouble to bring them in in the winter. They're not winter hardy here.

    Have you stuck your nose in it yet? They smell heavenly. Like soap, I think, and the scent is more intense in the evening.

    Congrats and enjoy, Cindy!

  6. I've never heard of it and it's probably because I'm from the midwest. It's beautiful though!

  7. I love bringing a new flower home and watching it bloom. enjoy. It is a true delight.
