Brugmansia bloom, finally!

marti8aJune 21, 2014

pkponder gave me this potted plant last fall and I kept it in the garage all winter, dragging it out every day that was warm enough. It was attacked by spider mites and I thought I was going to lose it, and still might, but I spray it every day so maybe not. It has been so much trouble keeping it alive that I was going to just let it die a quick death instead of keeping it on life support, but now that I've seen a bloom, well, let's just say I took it off the DNR list.

How very pretty and the story behind it was great, especially taking it off the DNR list, lol

I'm so glad the plant got a reprieve. It's a beautiful color and how brave it is to bloom while under attack by spider mites.
