A gem of an Angel Trumpet with mini blooms

Here's another Angel Trumpet seedling from a cross I made between Brugmansia 'Axelrose' x 'Marbach' that merits watching.

axelrosexmarbach1-3.jpgAs you can see in the photo above, this seedling is being used in my hybridizing program this fall.  The majority of the early crosses I made are with other small flowered cultivars and seedlings.  Once I know which crosses take I plan to expand the selection of crosses out to other cultivars I would like to see smaller blooms in.   I'm also hoping the apparent ever-blooming traits continue on and can be transferred to future generations.
