Pink Angels

This is a bloom from one of my many brugmansias (Angel Trumpets) which is one of my favorites. It is about eight feet high and when it blooms in the spring it has up to fifty or sixty blossoms on it all at once and the scent is overwhelming! The interesting leaf is probably the result of an iron deficiency. Although I usually feed them in the spring they seem to deplete the soil quickly.

Very cool. We have them here in out parliament grounds but they have to be overwintered inside.
