The A-Z Challenge continues with the letter B!
Each year at the greenhouses we grow Brugmansia. They are absolutely stunning flowering plants native to South America. Every year I say I'm going to bring a couple home and I haven't yet. This year I want three to make a really nice background for a new garden I'm planning.
I don't have any pictures of my own, but I found this picture here.
We grow ours as annuals because of the short growing season here and they get about 3-4 ft high.
In their native places they can grow much bigger.
I have no idea what colors we'll grow, but I'm pretty excited about my new garden. Any color I can get will be super!
Very pretty flowers! And it is that time of year for planting and beautifying yards. Isn't it great?ReplyDelete
I am visiting your blog as a fellow participant in the A to Z Challenge. Have a great week!
I have seen these in Hawaii. They are huge! There is one called Chocolate that actually smells like cocoa butter. Amazing!ReplyDelete
Those are absolutely glorious!ReplyDelete
Wow. Those are beautiful! Can you grow them in a pot and take them in each year so they can come back?ReplyDelete
These are very gorgeous!ReplyDelete
