This Brugmansia seedling is a keeper for sure

Now on its second year in my watch zone, this Angel Trumpet has earned itself keeper status.  It is a Brenda Delph cross of Brugmansia Terri Schindler Shiavo x New Orleans Lady.

terishiavoxneworleanslady-5.jpgThe coloring is also similar to that of its father, New Orleans Lady.  All the blooms pictured here were sliced open for pollinating following this photo session so I do not have a decent picture of a fully colored bloom.

terishiavoxneworleanslady-6.jpgI crossed this seedling back to both of its parents and I know for sure the New Orleans Lady cross took.  More blooms should be open early next week and I plan to select some pollen that may help bring out a deeper orange color in the blooms.  I noticed Brugmansia Terri Schindler Shiavo should be in bloom at the same time and you can be assured it will  be crossed back to this one.
