Where the Garden Meets the Street

Brugmansias, stealing the show.

Every summer, the front border at our house is reserved for a display of annuals. It’s beside the sidewalk on one of Burlington’s main thoroughfares, so we want it to be special.

This year, my partner designed a border that features brugmansias and other plants in hot colors, including a Chinese banana tree, cactus-flowered dahlias (orange), elephant ears (one black and one green with black veins), lantanas and coleus (yellow and orange).

One of the three brugmansias has reached seven feet, and they’ve been blooming since late June. We couldn’t be happier with the results.

Now, to plan for next year.

    Seven feet high brugmansias must be some pretty good fertiliser. Well Done.
