A buttery Brugmansia treat

My Brugmansia seedlings are slowly coming back into bloom after this past winter's devastating freezes.  The first to bloom are repeats, seedlings that bloomed for the first time last fall. Here's one that I put it my keeper zone last year to see how it performs this this summer.  It is a seedling from a cross made by Brenda Delph involving Brugmansia Lady Liberty and Jamie's Monkey Business..

The blooms are a light butter yellow color with a thick texture.  Now that our temperatures are up in the 90's, the blooms are much lighter than there were in Fall.

The blooms have a rather elegant look to them with the way the tendrils curl over.  Even as the blooms age and the tendrils start to re-curve, I find the blooms to be equally as appealing.

I'm not certain if this one will be worthy of registering, but I do plan to keep it around so I can use it in my hybridizing program in Fall.
