Brugmansia 'Supernova'- huge flower

Postby Eric 9b » Wed Apr 02, 2008 1:57 pm

Brugmansia 'Supernova' is flowering for the first time. It was a little stick last year and is about 6ft tall now. The flowers are almost 16" in length, including the green calyx and very fragrant towards evening.

Is Supernova bigger than KGW? I have a KGW seedling that's pretty big, but more wide than long.

Is that a B. versicolor hybrid?

Length, tips, foliage look like one, but the wide bell doesn't.

I think I might have to get some to try. If they are small enough, they can go under my bauhinia which has grown beserk in the last 3 months of wet season. Where can I get one in Cairns, Ann...? Might not be able to stop by at Steve's.

Regards, Ari :)

Not sure what the parentage is.

What one is KGW?

The parentage of Supernova is unknown.

KGW = Kyle's Giant White

I'll post a photo when it blooms again.

Ari, are you looking for a specific Brugs or just any decent brugs to trial in Darwin? Ann

Nothing too expensive, Ann... so if I kill it, I won't cry over it too much. When I know that I can successfully grow one, I will get more rarer stuff. And by then... I would have more shade too. Probably the toughest too... to try the first time.

Ari, I'll try and bring a stick or two up for you on Mother's Day.
Chris, Alistair has twisted my rubber arm into joining ABADS. Now if I can just read the security code properly I'll be able to get into the secret brugs business forum :? and seed bank! Ann
