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'.The 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 ...

New fall color in my brugmansia jungle

Now that summer is winding down and the nights are starting to cool off ever so slightly (like a low of 72 versus 76 is really that cool), my Angel Trumpet seedlings are starting to finally hold their buds and bloom.  Based on some of the blooms I have recently experienced, I expect fall to be full of surprises.

The blooms are average in size with good substance.The father of this seedling, ...

Brugmansia Orange Sunshine x New Orleans Lady

Here's a nice double white Angel Trumpet seedling that grabbed my attention the other day.  It is from a cross I made between Brugmansia Orange Sunshine x New Orleans Lady.I like the fact that it has nice separated skirts.  The blooms are also thicker in texture which helps them hold up better in our Florida heat. This seedling has gone through several bloom cycles and so far the blooms have remained snow white.  I feel this seedling is worthy of watching so I'm going to carry it over into ...
