Finally... a bloom. A magnificent one for sure. With a lovely fragrance too.
I waited since I bought this plant in the spring. It is supposed to be a rapid grower, reaching 5 feet in one season. This one is just about 3 feet tall.
I began to think it would not bloom before the cold weather came.
I was so excited to notice a long, slender pod hanging down from the leaves.
It took a while to unfold. It is just as lovely as I had imagined.
I would love to bring the potted plant indoors to winter over. But I think it best not too as all parts of the (Brugmansia) plant are poisonous.
Has anyone else grown this plant?
