Gardeners' Notes:

Hybridized by Eric Knight.

One of my top 5 as well. Does well with Georgia heat, humidity and bugs, never saw it wilt, tho planted in 75% clay & late afternoon shade. This one bloomed May to mid-November. With Parents of Dr. Seuss and Solid Gold, you know it smells great; I detect a light tutti-fruitty scent by day and a stronger spicy scent like DS at nite. I get a very nice orange color.

This is one of my favorite brugmansias. It opens to a light yellow that rapidly darkens to yellow orange or a light orange. The scent is wonderful, and the bloom stays open well, and lasts for a long time. This is the tallest brug I've grown so far, and started flowering at approximately 5' tall. This is a good thing in my mind, as I like the tree look.
