Miner's Claim Brug

I got one of these (waiting for delivery) and had never heard of it before. It's been around a while but it's not very popular. It looked very pretty in the pic. Is it a really slow grower or hard to get to bloom or something? I was surprised that I hadn't seen one before and thought (after I bought it) that there might be a reason that it wasn't more popular lol. I realize that there's loads of varieties that I'm not familiar with but most of the variegated brugs are fairly popular.

Patented Brug #2, I believe... It's from the same people who made Snowbank.
We wanted both at first, but after reading about Snowbank, decided against both. Don't know, might change my mind on that one someday, I do like the leaves on it.

Brugmansia Snowbank was discovered and propagated by Terra Nova Nursery. California's Keith Miner, discovered B. Miner's Claim in 1999 as a mutation in a section of B. Frosty Pink at Monterrey Bay Nursery. From what I've heard, Miner's Claim is very poor at flowering. Snowbank wasn't good at flowering for me, but I've never tried Miner's Claim. Maya does well, so she is the one I grow most of the time, that has variegation. I will be growing the white suaveolens variegata this year too. It is also a good brug for flowering.

I figured there must have been some reason that it wasn't more popular. lol I got a small cutting of Snowbank last fall and it's still small. As a matter of fact I don't think it's grown more than 10 inches since I got it and it didn't go dormant over the winter. I'm hoping that it will start putting on some decent growth now that it's outside, we'll see. My Maya and Peaches & Cream both grow and bloom well. I'll cross my fingers that the M.C. does better than my Snowbank.

I don't know...even if it never bloomed, I'd grow Snowbank for its beautiful foliage.

Here's a pic of Carol's Snowbank that I took last year when Carrie & I went to her plant swap in TX:

I got a Maya last year & it's done well and I have a cutting of Peaches & Cream...I'll have to be happy with those 2 for now.
