This Angel Trumpet is a mess, but I like it anyways...

The blooms on this Angel Trumpet are a total mess, but I still find their overall look attractive.  The cross is Brugmansia Miss B Haven x Seminole Moon.When the buds first start to open it is easy to see that the blooms are going to be shredded.  This seedling started blooming almost two years ago and at first I thought the shredded look may be anomaly.  Numerous times I have had plants throw shredded blooms on and off, mixed with normal looking blooms. This one has maintained the its ...

A monsterous new Angel Trumpet

A recent bloomer in my Angel Trumpet forest was this seedling from a cross made between Brugmansia Miss B Haven x Daydreams.  The blooms are giant in size and the one pictured above was at least 10 inches across.  The one shown below was equally as wide with a length to match. The plant is also on the larger size and this seedling easily reached 8 feet tall before blooming for the first time.  I plan to cross this one back to several other large flowered cultivars I have to see if I can ...

Miss B Haven with Miss Emily Mackenzee

Here's an Angel Trumpet marriage with mixed results. The first photo of this cross between Brugmansia Miss B Haven and Miss Emily Mackenzee is a seedling that looks just like its momma. Actually it is more like a pink version of its mother, Brugmansia Miss B Haven.  Miss B Haven is a multi-skirt white Angel Trumpet introduced by Brenda Delph a few years ago.Here's another seedling from the Brugmansia Miss B Haven x Miss Emily Mackenzee cross. This Angel Trumpet seedling bloomed earlier this ...
