    Absolutely stunning! Gorgeous pictures. I would LOVE to see a place like that sometime. The rainforests are so rich with wildlife and plantlife.

    How luck you are to have been there.

    Thanks for sharing the pics. I feel like I've been there...minus the bugs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Nep G:

    Nethertheless, it was and does grow wild in Arches Nat'l park, Zion Nat'l park, etc. I suspect it grows mostly in areas where a rock sublayer maintains a higher moisture level near the surface.

    I did a google. Here's what i'm talking about:

    Growing it as an ornamental
    History, origin, and pharmacology
    Photos and cultivation data from brugmansias.com
    etc etc etc

    AKA Sacred Datura, Jimsonweed, Belladonna...

    Whatever you do, DON'T EAT IT! The second link was particularly interesting.

    Edit: If you read the grower comments below the info on brugmansias it appears that it also grows in the Sonoran desert. What an adaptable plant!

    Schloaty, you are correct, there is a temperate rainforest on the west coast, which I would also like to visit sometime in my life [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] , and even it gets snow over the winter [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] . I meant a tropical rainforest, as they tend to be the kind with a more interesting array of plants and animals (cp's as an example).
