Angel Trumpet Brugmansia 'Bert' x 'Naughty Nick'

Here's another Angel Trumpet seedling I have been watching for a couple of years and now must decide if should be a keeper. It is from a cross I made between Brugmansia 'Bert' x 'Naughty Nick'.It definitely has its father's growth genes and It is pushing up the top of my shadehouse, which is about 9 feet high in that location.  The blooms are mostly all triples and are slightly larger than those of 'Naughty Nick'.  The corolla skirts are often extended, much like those of Brugmansia 'Angels ...

An Angel Trumpet seedling as bright as the summer sun

One of the showiest Angel Trumpet seedlings in my shadehouse this past week was this one from a cross I made between Brugmansia 'Cassies Curls' x 'Lizzy'.This seedling started blooming last year and the medium sized blooms are always doubles with separated skirts.  It has a similar growth style as its father, 'brugmansia 'Lizzy', but is not as fast a grower as 'Lizzy'. When the blooms are fully mature, like the one above, it is not uncommon to see a tinge of cantaloupe color show through.So ...

A new Angel Trumpet seedling worthy of watching

I was pleasantly surprised to discover this new bloom on one of my Angel Trumpet seedlings from a Brugmansia Joli x Charleston cross.The seeds came from German hybridizer Volker Sanders.  One very interesting trait associated with this first set of blooms is that the inner corolla skirt is larger and darker than the outer skirts. I'm growing out at least 25 seedlings from this cross and I have had several bloom prior to this one.  Although they were nice, there was nothing super special ...

Spider on patrol

I'm sure he is eying that plump little fruit fly that is buzzing towards him for a midnight snack...or perhaps he's got his eye on the one off to his right? Actually the spiders have gotten out of control amongst my brugmansia plants, especially the crab spiders. It is nearly impossible to walk down the isles without running into several spider webs.  I lost count as to how many times I've felt one these pointy crab spiders scurrying across my face. If I would look straight ahead rather than ...

Introducing Brugmansia 'White Lightning'

Meet Brugmansia 'White Lightning', a new Angel Trumpet I recently named and registered through the International Brugmansia and Datura Society (iBrugs.com).Brugmansia 'White Lightning' is from a cross between Brugmansia Jazzy x Naughty Nick. I named it White Lightning because of the crazy explosive looking corolla teeth (tendrils). It sort of reminds of the wild lightning shows we have around here most summer nights. The blooms are medium in size with a long corolla tube and they stay snow ...
