Maya/Sunset in standard form. A gorgeous brugmansia I well recommend to grow.
These are Maya seed pods.Maya makes a great mother plant and every flower I pollinated formed a seed pod.
In its third year it is finally blooming in great flushes.
Maya in third year of of growth container grown. Wonderful Brugmansia not only for it's blooms but foliage as well.
Blooms of Maya. In Oregon climate the blooms last quite long. The fragrance reminds me of a fresh honeycomb.

The leaves are so striking in their variegation.
This is another big grower when planted in the ground. The blooms are very fragrant at night.
'Maya' doesn't stay this size for long.
'Maya' is a reliable bloomer.
Flowers open pure white, later turning pale pink.
Variegated foliage is attractive even without flowers.
