Itsy bitsy teeny weeney Angel Trumpet revisited

This is a follow-up post to the Itsy bitsy teeny weeney Angel Trumpet post I made a few days ago.  I wanted to wait until the second bud opened to make certain this seedling was going to continue to produce miniature blooms, and it has!  I'm totally psyched!  This seedling is going to perform an important role in my future breeding program.  Here is a bloom from Naughty Nick x Cleopatra fully open:

As you can see, the blooms are triples and there is even a tinge of color in them.  I do not think this seedling will be a shy bloomer because it currently has at least six more buds in various stages of growth.  The plant itself is medium size, about 3 1/2 feet tall.  It is still in a one gallon pot, but it has fully rooted itself into the ground.

Here's another picture using my rugged old hand for size reference:
