A super-sized Angel Trumpet

Today's featured Angel Trumpet seedling has super-sized blooms, similar in size to those of Miss Emily Meckenzie.  This brugmansia is a cross between (Luminosa x Charleston) x Native Habitat Double Peach,  I like the form and color found in these blooms and I plan to cross it back to Native Habitat Dbl Peach, New Orleans Lady and Langenbuscher Garten for starters.
