Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Brugmansia On Nov 29, 2002, Brugmansia from FSH, TX wrote:

This one was hybridized by Eric Other than that, it was a first year bloomer that also set seed in its first year. Just clarifying. My first and foremost priority in breeding hybrids are early blooming, highly fertile, easy to propage hybrids and this one meets all of those criteria.

This one was hybridized by Eric Knight. It is a Dr Suess x Ecuador pink cross.
