Brugmansia spp. "The Shambles"
After a long dry spell in Spring and early summer, storm rains have injected an enormous amount of colour and renewd growth into the garden. The Brugmansias seem to make their best display if left alone to do their own thing, They do spread, which is a bit naughty. and are poisonous whch is naughtier still for the grand children. They are magnificent though.
Once a year at Christmas our collection of Hibiscus syriacus (from China and Korea) bring ttheir beautiful mauve, white and double pink flowers. The flowers fold up like wet tissue paper if picked for the Christmas table. These plants are fully deciduous.
