Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral absinthium On Apr 6, 2006, absinthium from Spring Valley, CA wrote:

Pretty tough and grows well despite the fact that is attracts treehoppers who defoliate it in the summer. The treehoppers are apparently only attracted to this plant, since I haven't seen them elswhere, even on the neighboring brugmansia. The flowers are held somewhat toward the inside of the branches, not the ends. Not terribly showing but pretty enough up close. Will grow in shade but prefers sun and some moisture. Not a jewel type plant to design around, unlike its cousins the brugmansias. I prefer the purple ones, personally.

Neutral palmbob On Nov 4, 2005, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

sometimes called the heat loving fuschia, this is a compromise for those who want a plant with fuschia-like flowers to bloom all summer, in warmer climates. It supposedly is hardy in zones 8-10. It is a Central/South American native related to Brugmansias.
