Brugmansia Inca Sun X Angels Goldface

Here's another Angel Trumpet seedling from a cross I made between Brugmansia Inca Sun X Angels Goldface.   When you look at the bloom face it has a very strong resemblance to its father, Brugmansia Angels Goldface. This was the first bloom on this seedling so I'll have to wait and see if the resemblance continues.  As is often the case with new seedlings with multi-skirted blooms, the bloom form will evolve and change as the seedling matures.I still have at least a dozen more seedlings from ...

This Brugmansia is a hand full of color

Here's one of my Angel Trumpet seedlings that has been a standout this summer.  It has been a prolific bloomer with thick textured, petite sized butter yellow blooms. The cross is Brugmansia Angels Goldface x Inca Sun.This is just one of many seedlings I have from this cross, and a reverse cross, Brugmansia 'Inca Sun' x 'Angels Goldface' that I have placed into my watch zone.  I still have at least 10 seedlings from those two crosses that have yet to bloom, and I'm certain a few of them will ...
