A Flaming Angel Trumpet

A quick glance at this new Angel Trumpet seedling gives you the impression the bloom is on fire!  This super-sized bloom is from a cross I made between Brugmansia  ('Inca Sun' x 'Lemon Meringue') x 'Herbstzauber'.So far the long corolla teeth have not re-curved so the illusion of flames continues through the bloom cycle.  These photos were captured a few weeks ago when the weather was still warm.  This seedling is starting a new bloom cycle now and with our cooler nights, the new blooms are ...

A double dose of lemon in a beautiful new Angel Trumpet

A lemony Angel Trumpet with an unusual twist

This new Angel Trumpet seedling has one of the more unusual blooms I have encountered this season. It is from a cross involving Brugmansia Lemon Twist x Lemon Meringue. The outer skirt of the bloom has a waxy texture and is a bright yellow. The inner skirt is what makes this bloom unique.  It has more of a satiny texture and is white with yellow edges.  The white remained throughout the duration of the bloom's cycle.  It is sort of the reverse of its father, Lemon Meringue, where the bloom ...
