Brugmansia Breeding History Sets

A goal of Exotic Earth Plants is to grow all seven single-species of Brugmansia listed as extinct in the wild by the IUCN Red List. We are also working to build a collection of two-species Brugmansia and three-species Brugmansia.


Breeding History Sets or BHS are used to distinguish the parentage of a hybrid brugmansia species. Where cultivars are of a species or a botanically named hybrid, the botanical species or hybrid is transposed as the label for the BHS. For example B.Sanguinea are assigned BHS Sanguinea or B. x Rubella assigned BHS Rubella. In cases where hybrid combinations does not have botanical names such as B.Sauveolens x B.Aurea, or B. Versicolor x B.Insignis , then BHS label has coined these into a pronounceable words, hence BHS Suarea and BHS Verinsi. These labels lie outside both the Botanical and the Cultivated codes and are Informal. They are merely stating the historical breeding set used to create the species otherwise known as the species make-up. This nomenclature is useful if forming a brugmansia collection as we are at Exotic Earth Plants. See below for the Breeding History Sets full list:


Brugmansia Single Species BHSs

Arborea - including all cultivars that are derived only from B.Arborea

Aurea - including all cultivars that are derived only from B.Aurea

Insiginis - including all cultivars that are derived only from B.Insignis

Sanguinea - including all cultivars that are derived only from B.Sanguinea

Suaveolens - including all cultivars that are derived only from B.Suaveolens

Versicolor - including all cultivars that are derived only from B.Versicolor

Vulcanicola - including all cultivars that are derived only from B.Vulcanicola


Brugmansia Two-Species BHSs

Aurinsi - including all hybrid combinations of B.Aurea and B.Insignis

Candida - including all hybrid combinations of B.Versicolor and B.Aurea

Rubella - including all hybrid combinations of B.Arborea and B.Sanguinea

Suarea - including all hybrid combinations of B.Suaveolens and B. Aurea

Suaver - including all hybrid combinations of B.Suaveolens and B.Versicolor

Suavinsi - including all hybrid combinations of B.Suaveolens and B.Insignis

Verinsi - including all hybrid combinations of B.Versicolor and B.Insignis

Vulsa - including all hybrid combinations of B.Vulcanicola and B.Sanguinea

Vularbo - including all hybrid combinations of B.Vulcanicola and B.Arborea


Brugmansia Three Species BHSs

Arbovulsa - including all hybrid combinations of B.Arborea, B. Vulcanicola and B.Sanguinea

Suaverinsi - including all hybrid combinations of B.Suaveolens, B.Versicolor and B,Insignis

Suavinsuarea - including all hybrid combinations of B.Suaveolens, B.Insignis and B.Aurea

Cubensis - including all hybrid combinations of B.Versicolor, B.Suaveolens and B.Aurea

Verisuarea - including all hybrid combinations of B.Versicolor, B.Insignis and B.Aurea


For example:

Brugmansia Goldkrone is ascribed to the Cubensis BHS because ir is a hybrid between B. 'Charles Grimaldi (Cubensis) and B. Goldenes Kornett (B.Aurea) - B. 'Charles Grimaldi' being a hybris of 'Dr Suess' (cubensis) and B.'Frosty Pink' (Suaveolens). B. Goldkrone therefore has only, but all three of, B.Aurea, B.Suaveolens and B.Versicolor in its make up.

B.'Charles Grimaldi' - Cubensis BHS
