Brugmansia Sommerzauber x Cassies Curls

A cross I made a few years ago between Brugmansia Sommerzauber x Cassies Curls has generated several great looking Angel Trumpet seedlings.  Here's one that is in its second year of trialing.

Brugmansia Sommerzauber's blooms are mostly a cream color, but under certain growing conditions will turn a nice soft yellow..  Brugmansia Cassies Curls has injected some stronger color genes into the offspring.  So far all but one of the seedlings that have bloomed from this cross have produced bright yellow single blooms. One turned out to be a bright yellow double and it is currently in my watch zone.
