The Big Chill

With the nighttime temps dropping to below 30 degrees, some of our plants are taking a hit. This Brugmansia or angel’s trumpet  worked all season to come back from last year’s freeze and had just started to flower.   I find the scent of the flower to be intoxicating.

Brugmansia comes originally from tropical areas of South America and doesn’t tolerate frost.  My friend, Pam, in Occidental has the plant and being closer to the ocean, they don’t get frost.  I guess we will have to give up on growing it on Pillow Road.
