    WOW ,Dovefromabove, now that's my kind of brugmansia .Absolutely stunning. Would love a garden and conservatory  big enough for one that size.

    Are you sure it's a Brug? The leaves on mine are very different. I'd have said Walnut tree from the picture.

    I think walnut leaves are long and thin.

    I don't think its a brugmansia, but no idea without more photos.

    All plants (well, almost all) flower ... eventually ... perhaps it needs more sunshine ... ?

    Well, from those photos, I'm thinking Brugmansia.  It appears to be inside. get it outside in the sun, feed it once  or twice a week with a teaspoon of Phostrogen in a watering can of water.  My red brug is just forming buds, it has taken three years, is in the biggest pot I can handle, about 18 inch across, 4 ft high, 5 stems. It spent the winter in a frost free greenhouse, and being very mild last year did not get cut down. It is getting a bucket of water every day and feeding twice a week if I remember. ( I'm not too strict on these things)

    There are different types of brug, red, pink, white, yellow, single,  double.

     if it flowers let us know.

    If anyone has cutting material or knows where I could get "Angels sun explosion" please let me know.

  • Fidgetbones - this place in Germany do the Sun Explosion. I have bought from them before and were impressed with the service and quality of the plants.
