The Shredded Hankie

This is one of my favorite plants. It is a brugmansia called 'Shredded Hankie'. This is the bloom, fully unfurled. It looks like a wadded up kleenex. LOL

Like all brugs, it is poisonus. All parts, all the time.

But, since I don't eat them, and don't teach children to eat flowers, I don't care.
People are asking for trouble when they teach their kids to eat the nasturtiums. Let them wait until they are grown to find out you can eat flowers. Like I did.

Well, well, that's one I don't think I've ever seen before!

I can root a cutting for you in the spring, if you want. It is an excellent plant.....if you like plants.
