Brugmansia!

I like to grow fun stuff sometimes.  I saw these plants in New Orleans and Florida and fell in love with them.  I purchased a bulb from Logee’s Greenhouse three years ago, and it has done very well.  ( I put it in the basement during the winter).  The buds are very cool at all stages of development.    There are a lot of  photos, but I just couldn’t resist.  The scent is intoxicating as well – especially in the evening.  Enjoy.
