Gardeners' Notes:

This Brugmansia grew amazingly fast in the ground. It finally looks beautiful
after I used a natural caterpillar killer. The more hardcore pesticides kill the beneficial bugs that keep the white fly away. Out of all my Brugmansia only the verigated one's get so chewed up by caterpillars, that there are almost no leaves left. They even started eating through the branches, and main stock. The nice thing about this one, is it doesn't drop as many leaves as Snowbank.
And when the caterpillars are gone it's soooo beautiful!

I totally agree that it is wonderful! In addition to the previous comments, it roots very quickly and withstands heat and humidity well.

A great brug esp. due to its interesting foliage. The color is more a blue green, it adds lots of interest even when not blooming. My only complaint is that caterpillars will eat it alive so fast. A quick spray of BT cures that though!

Maya/Sunset is one of the most treasured brugmansias I grow. Lovely variegated foliage (white, green, blue green), fragrant versicolour bells (creamy white to pale peach to golden peach), and it's vigorous habit make it one of my most favourites. A pleasure to recommend this brugmansia (o:
