Beautiful picture and gorgeous brug.Where do you get all these names Liz? Just curious :-)

RE: Brugmansia Belshazzar


I sort of stare at them for a long time, then rummage through the old brain pan for a name that reminds me of what may relate to the coloration or form. Since this one was kind of persimmon color, it reminded me of persimmons - which are a somewhat exotic fruit from the Orient. That led to visions of a royal court, which in turn went somewhat ancient and led to the "writing on the wall" story from the Bible.
Eureka! Belshazzar! :)
