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.

missbhavenxseminolemoon2.jpgWhen 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 shredded look since the very first bloom.

missbhavenxseminolemoon.jpgAs the blooms first open they are white, but as they mature they pick-up a yellowish color.  The blooms are massive too.  I would describe them as dinner plate size measuring 8-10 inches across.  

missbhavenxseminolemoon2-3.jpgI plan to propagate this seedling later this spring and based on the outcome I'll decide if it is worthy of naming and registering. I feel many gardeners will find the unusual blooms as attractive as I have.
