    All of the bruggies are beautiful. We have a lot of them growing here. They tend to die down a bit over our winters but come back magnificently in the spring. Great survivalists :)

      I have a inexplicable fondness for all members of this genus. I have three Methysticodendron amesianum (B. aurea ‘culebra’) growing now. Its a very interesting one with a fascinating ethnobotanical history.
