    brugsmansia

    I have a friend locally that has offered cuttings from his brugsmansia, and I am eager to get some started, but can't seem to find info on when and how.

    Anyone ever propagated these that can help us out with a workable method?

    Tom,
    I haven't grown any of these, but the gardeners on another group I belong to all seem crazy about them. They are beautiful plants. They say they are really easy to propagate. Place the cutting in moist pot of soil and they root. Sounds too easy!
    Happy Growing,

    Tom,

    I have started quite a few. I left some stems in water one winter, and they rooted and transplanted well.

    The best way is to make cuttings and pot them. You can remove the leaves totally, and they will still root.

    Do a search for brugsmansia and one of the post should have pictures of the roots that formed in water. You know that is not my favorite method, but I was out of space and time that year.

    Just make sure to overwinter the cuttings and keep the soil moist.

    I have really enjoyed mine. They bloomed better for me the second year in the ground.
