Mountain Magic is something of a chameleon. It's color ranges from med. rose/pink to ruby red. For me, it was slow growing, difficult to root and a long time getting established. It stays a relatively small size, but puts out a good flush of symmetrical, approx. 10" - 12" blooms.
This is a must have Brugmansia for hybridizers who desire breeding for deeper shades in the ruby-red family.
Just love this one.
