We have a one and there are a few in the area I pass every day when walking the hound. I planted mine from a cutting about 2.5 years ago and is now about 1.5 metres high by 1 metre across. Seems to co exist with the spider lilies and Agapanthus
ok. Always flowers every other month. It is in a raised bed due to heavy clay, but I have seen no roots popping out of the ground. I must say though, the trunk is getting quite robust, but this is to be expected when you see it holding up the very large trumpet flowers.

Geoff - apologies for the lack of acknowledgement. Sad to say, I have allowed the cutting to pass to the compost heap! Will need to find another and hope to avoid offending my donor as well as you!

I have grown my Brugmansia
in very large plastic pots to control their eventual size and it seems to have worked well. I believe they can be removed and root pruned and am about to try this theory out this winter. They do drink a considerable amount of water grown this way and require daily watering (in Brisbane). I went on holiday for three weeks in early January so I just pruned them back very hard leaving them with no leaves and when I got back they were in leaf and ready to bloom again after each rain like nothing had been done to them.

is growing rapidly with lovely peach flowers, but it is being eaten voraciously
by something. I am spraying with eco-neem regularly but to no obvious avail.
I cannot find the critters doing the damage, any tips?
