Some fall color amongst my Angel Trumpets

Looks like I have another nice double orange Angel Trumpet seedling to place in my watch zone. This seedling is from a cross I made between Brugmansia 'New Orleans Lady' x 'Bert'.

neworleansladyxbert.jpgThe plant is healthy and a robust grower and the blooms fairly large. I took these photos last week when the weather was still summer-like, and as you can see, the blooms held up well in the heat. I bet the bloom color will deepen to a brighter orange when the next flush of blooms appear during cooler weather.  Even though the bloom is somewhat stuffed, it was open enough to keep the center from rotting in the heat.

neworleansladyxbert-2.jpgWith so many double/triple orange brugmansia seedlings in my watch zone, it is going to be a challenge to decide which ones are worthy of registering.  That is a nice problem to have.
