When I first started looking for a Brugmansia that had traits I wanted to pass on to a new cultivar I had in mind, Brugmansia "Sam" wasn't high on my list. It had a tendency to produce flowers that never opened fully, rotted without blooming if it was above 80 degrees and grew so slowly I thought I'd be sitting on a long, grey beard before it got to bush size. On the plus side, the flower color was superb - a nice smoldery raspberry color with a brownish cast, it threw triples frequently, didn't lose buds, made fat seed laden pods and it's leaves were thick and green.

A Little Bit Of Paradise

I have a leafy refuge where big things happen in a small way. We grow and hybridize Brugmansia, Passiflora, Amaryllis and a host of other tropical plants and flowering vines. We also enjoy art, writing, music, creating video presentations and woodworking.
