Brugmansia Dola is a solid performer here in Florida. It blooms flowers with a creamy colored corolla tube and flaming, almost red hem. Tendrils are very long and firey! Oftentimes the tendrils form a tight recurve. I really like this Brugmansia and use it in my breeding program for trying to induce multi-colored hybrids.
During our 2006 storm season, our garden was pretty well whipped up. I lost lots of flowers and pods, but the pods on Dola stuck like like they were Super-glued! She's a sentimental favorite here. Reminds me of flames painted on a '57 Chevy!
