The Cumbia Flower

This morning I took the camera to the tropical greenhouse on the Farm, and found this flamboyant beauty. I had no idea what it was and I couldn't find a label on the plant, but someone on Flickr said it was a trumpet flower. So I Googled that, and it turns out it's properly called a Brugmansia sanguinea. And it's from Colombia... :-)
