Sweet Essence of the Magnolia and Brugmansia

The small Magnolia in the back garden is in bloom. Last evening I noticed the fragrance of the Magnolia was combining nicely with the delicious fragrance of the Brugmansia.

The tall tilting tree is actually a Brugmansia.

The Wisteria covering the deck was quite heavy last year, casting shade. So the Brug is growing toward the light. When the flower cycle ends, I will cut it back.

I grew the Brug from seed several years ago. I have taken cuttings and harvested seed pods to make more plants.

I remove Brugmansia and Datura pods to prevent anyone from snagging them to use inappropriately.

The Brug was grown from seed purchased from Seedman.com. The site has seed for a variety of plants and a great place to find seed for unusual plants.
