Golden Angel Trumpets abound this summer

Today's featured Angel Trumpet seedling is from a cross I made between Brugmansia 'Herenhauser Gold' and 'Langenbuscher Garten'.  It is just one of dozens of new yellow Brugmansia seedlings in my growing area that have bloomed this summer.

herrenhausergoldxlangenbuschergarten2.jpgThis is the sixth seedling from this cross to bloom, and so far all six have been single yellows.  I plan to watch all of them during the next couple of months and then decide if any are truly worthy of carrying over to be trialed. 

I know I have at least 10 additional seedlings from this cross that have yet to bloom and I'm hoping at least one will have multi-skirted blooms.  Stay tuned for updates as the rest of the seedlings come into bloom.
