Yes we grow broms particularly tillandsias but we also grow a multitude of other plants particularly clivias and other bulbs also gingers, anthuriums, alocasias, orchids, brugmansias, fruit trees etc.....see brugmansia pictures
We are what I call addicted to plants................

Hi Abby

I have enlarged the one photot but it becomes blurry. The problem is the original upload size is very small.

Spanisheyes try and upload your photots at 640 x 480. Then you get a nice clear picture.



Kind regards
Eddie

Thanks for the help Eddie  :good:

Spanish
I am now seeing your pix in post image which is good but as Eddie suggests it would be nice if they were a bit larger

Any idea as to the variety of the pink one ?

Hi,
The pink is a sanguinea hybrid.  Brugmansias are very rewarding and wlll flower from seed within 18 months.
We should have seed in the next couple of months but most will be noids.
I have uploads "other" pictures to see how these are viewed at your end.

Rena,
I will try and pollinate the pink one when it flowers again.  We have this in yellows, yellow/red, yellow/pink, pink, and reds.
Some are still unflowered.  Our plants flower 8-12 times a year.  We imported the seed about two years ago, some have already flowered but these sanguineas have taken a little longer.
I will then offer the seeds up in exchange for other seeds.  I do have seed of Bruce's Pink and other pink varieties some of which have a flower which is about a 12 inches long.  I will send a picture of these as well.  These seed should be ready soon.
