Brugmansia Sommerzauber x Cassies Curls

A cross I made a few years ago between Brugmansia Sommerzauber x Cassies Curls has generated several great looking Angel Trumpet seedlings.  Here's one that is in its second year of trialing.The blooms start out a vibrant yellow and then age to a nice warm orange color. Brugmansia Sommerzauber's blooms are mostly a cream color, but under certain growing conditions will turn a nice soft yellow..  Brugmansia Cassies Curls has injected some stronger color genes into the offspring.  So far all ...

I'm growing out a bunch of Angel Trumpet seedlings with Brugmansia Sommerzauber as the pod parent.  Several have bloomed and all have had single yellow blooms.  Recently I finally had one bloom with multiple skirts. Here it is and the cross is Brugmansia Sommerzauber x Cassies CurlsSo far I like what I see.  The medium size blooms were a rich yellow with separated skirts.  These were the first set of blooms on this seedling so the final look may change over the next couple of bloom ...

There's Angel Trumpet gold in my garden

This Angel Trumpet seedling has some of the nicest yellow blooms I have seen.  The seedling is from a cross involving Brugmansia Sommerzauber x Cassie's Curls.The blooms remind me of Brenda Delph's Andrew's Gold.  So far the blooms have stayed yellow and not aged to orange like many yellows tend to do.  This seedling has great parentage with Monika Gottschalk's Sommerzauber as pod bearer.  The father, Cassie's Curls is one of my favorite single orange brugmansia. What was exciting about this ...
