We are an International group dedicated to all things horticultural about Brugmansia and Datura - Angel's Trumpets and Thorn Apples.

We totally adore these beautiful plants. Whether you have just discovered them or are an experienced grower, this is the place for you.

Our role is to provide fun, friendly forums where you can meet fellow gardeners, professional growers and technical experts, showcase new hybrids, older cultivars, and your gardens, and exchange cuttings, seeds and pollen.

As the ICRA for Brugmansia and Datura, working with other enthusiasts' groups around the world, we maintain an exhaustive register of cultivar names and other details about each cultivar in searchable databases and image galleries, and we issue the BGI Herald which provides for the formal publication of new cultivar names and other matters concerning the correct naming of cultivars.

BGI has members spread over different areas and climates in the United States, South and Central America, Canada, Australia, Asia and Europe. We will be providing hints and tips for growing brugs in differing growing conditions along with:

  • A gallery of photos
  • Forums to share pictures, ask questions and grow as a group
  • Articles by various members and guests
  • Seed and pollen offers
  • Contests
  • and more!

So please, pull up a chair and enjoy wandering through our site.

The 2016 BGI Calendar is available now!
