Gardeners' Notes:

One of the most frequent flowering brugs for the Texas heat during the summer. Large fuzzy leaves shade the blooms and they last for several days. Unfortunately grasshoppers have been eating the leaves this year but other than that have had no pests for 2 years. The smell is wonderful and perfumes the yard.

This brugmansia has soft velvety leaves and blooms continuously. Its flowers are very different and very beautiful. The scent is also very lovely.
