Gardeners' Notes:

Positive SarahGigi On Aug 24, 2007, SarahGigi from Newbury Park, CA wrote:

Adora is now my favorite. I have 8 different types of Brugmansia,
and this one is by far the best. It just started blooming in our most host summer days here in California since it's just made it's Y. The blooms have stayed open for 5 days or longer. Once they opened they have stayed open. They have not closed during the day like all my other Brugmansia. Not to mention the flowers are huge, and the color is beautiful. I can't say enough about this one.

This flower is the deepest pink of any suaveolens type brugmansia I have seen.
