the flowers of brugmansia 'pink beauty' start out ghostly white during the day, but by late evening they will be pink and tropically scented. here is the same plant the next day, with the two flowers pictured above on the right side of the plant. i am allowing a passion flower to climb the trunk of this brugmansia.

How does your combination pot of the Brug and Passionflower Vine do over the winter. When I overwintered my Brugs all the leaves fell off and the only passionflower that survived was a little one I put in the window.

zephyr, they are not in the same pot, just next to each other. the passion flowers are easy to overwinter if you have sun in the house! the brugmansia need a cool, dark, dry place and water every week or so. they do lose their leaves, but then resurge when you put them outside in the spring.
