Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Another Plant Comes Back From the Dead

One of my Brugmansias that I thought died over the winter is showing new growth from the roots. WooHoo! I made the mistake of putting my 3 Brugs in the unheated shed over the winter, instead of in the garage. I thought that they had all died.

New growth from the Brug's roots

Not so! It may not get big enough to bloom this year, but you never know. I was so bummed at thinking they were dead, but so thrilled last year when I finally saw flowers on mine, that I actually bought a new one not too long ago at Windmill Gardens nursery, labeled Charles Grimaldi. There's no sign of new growth on the other two, so they might really be dead, but I'll probably hang onto them for a little while longer, just in case.

And I won't make the mistake of over-wintering them in an unheated spot again.
