Angel Trumpet Brugmansia 'Bert' x 'Naughty Nick'

Here's another Angel Trumpet seedling I have been watching for a couple of years and now must decide if should be a keeper. It is from a cross I made between Brugmansia 'Bert' x 'Naughty Nick'.

BERTXNAUGHTYNICK-3.jpgIt definitely has its father's growth genes and It is pushing up the top of my shadehouse, which is about 9 feet high in that location.  The blooms are mostly all triples and are slightly larger than those of 'Naughty Nick'.  The corolla skirts are often extended, much like those of Brugmansia 'Angels Sunbeam'.

The blooms start out white and will sometimes pick up a peach color as they mature.  It is a heavy bloomer and a real attention grabber when it is in full flush.

I'm leaning towards making this one a keeper, but I'll wait until fall before I make a final decision on whether it should be named and registered.
