This Angel Trumpet is a keeper for sure!

Here's one of my favorite double pink Angel Trumpets I have growing in my watch zone.  It is from a cross between Brugmansia Butterfly x (Terri Shiavo x Earth Angel).

butterflyxtssxearthangel-2.jpgI have been watching this Angel Trumpet seedling perform for over two years and now it is time to set if free. Once i dream up a suitable name for it I plan to officially register and release it.

butterflyxtssxearthangel-3.jpgThe blooms are large and full and hold up extremely well here in the Florida heat.  Like many pink brugmansia, the color deepens considerably in the warmer summer months.

butterflyxtssxearthangel-4.jpgAnother great trait this seedling has is that the blooms always have great form.
