Brugmansia Inca Sun X Angels Goldface

Here's another Angel Trumpet seedling from a cross I made between Brugmansia Inca Sun X Angels Goldface.   When you look at the bloom face it has a very strong resemblance to its father, Brugmansia Angels Goldface. This was the first bloom on this seedling so I'll have to wait and see if the resemblance continues.  As is often the case with new seedlings with multi-skirted blooms, the bloom form will evolve and change as the seedling matures.I still have at least a dozen more seedlings from ...

Look at the whiskers on this new Brugmansia seedling

A recent standout in my Angel Trumpet jungle was this bloom on a seedling from a cross I made between Brugmansia Axelrose x Marbach.

If the orange color is this bright in ...

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. Here's a new seedling that recently bloomed that has already set the bar very high for fall.  It is from a cross I made between Brugmansia Angels Swingtime x (Shooting Star x New ...

When the gardeners away, the bugs will play...

I was out of town on business for over a week and when I returned I found out my shade house had been invaded by caterpillars.  Their feeding frenzy quickly gave many of my Brugmansia the Swiss cheese look.

Brugmansia Marshmallow Sunset x Angel's Goldface

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon this new Angel Trumpet seedling from a cross I made between Brugmansia Marshmallow Sunset x Angels Goldface. It has Marshmallow Sunset's form with a creamy yellow color influenced by Angels Goldface. Brugmansia Marshmallow Sunset has been a great performer and a standout in my Brugmansia jungle. I feel it has lots of potential as a parent and has been used extensively in my breeding program the past two years.  I 'm currently growing out seedlings ...

A golden surprise in my jungle of Brugmansia

Here is a new Angel Trumpet seedling that has captured my attention this summer.  It is from a cross I made between Brugmansia Bergische Symphony x Marbach.It is with a group of about 400 gallon sized seedlings I potted up this spring. This seedling was super charged and grew much faster than the others in the group, and was was the first of the bunch to bloom.  It is already experiencing its second flush of blooms, while none of the other seedlings are even ready to start setting buds. The ...
