Brugmansia Lizzy x Angel's Goldface

When I made this cross between Brugmansia Lizzy and Angel's Goldface I was hoping that a couple of the seedlings would produce a golden version of Lizzy's triple blooms.

I still have about 8-10 seedlings from this cross yet to bloom so I'm not giving up hope that at least one will be a nice triple yellow.
