Fascinating Flowering Brunfelsia Pauciflora Plants
The Brunfelsia Pauciflora plants as commonly called are tropical plants indigenous to Brazil. These flowering plants flaunt a fascinating bed of flowers. Brunfelsia is a genus of flowering plants and shrubs native to the tropics and the subtropical regions of South and Central America. Brunfelsia Pauciflora plants are grown in cultivation in gardens all over the world. Gardeners interested in growing Brunfelsia can find seedlings at gardening supply stores and nurseries, and they can also propagate from cuttings taken with permission from other gardeners. Cuttings root readily in greenhouse settings and can be an excellent way to quickly propagate a number of plants. Members of this genus have broad, simple leaves and distinctive tubular flowers with broad petals. When the flowers first appear, they are a rich purple color, gradually fading to pale purple and then white over time. The dense clusters of flowers are typically highly aromatic and in a warm climate. A Brunfelsia will bloom throughout the summer months, providing both scent and visual interest.
These plants are native to woodland habitats and prefer partial to filtered shade. People growing them in hot, dry climates with long, bright days should seek out shadier areas, while people in cooler climates with less strong light can try growing Brunfelsia in full sun. Generally, these plants will grow in United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) zones eight through 11.
