Some fall color amongst my Angel Trumpets

Looks like I have another nice double orange Angel Trumpet seedling to place in my watch zone. This seedling is from a cross I made between Brugmansia 'New Orleans Lady' x 'Bert'.The plant is healthy and a robust grower and the blooms fairly large. I took these photos last week when the weather was still summer-like, and as you can see, the blooms held up well in the heat. I bet the bloom color will deepen to a brighter orange when the next flush of blooms appear during cooler weather.  Even ...

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.

Part Angel Trumpet, part octopus...just kidding of course.

This striking new Angel Trumpet seedling has flailing corolla teeth that resemble an octopus or spider.  The cross is one I made between Brugmansia Bert and Angel's Exotic.As the bloom matured the color deepened even more than what is shown in these pictures.  I know where the wild corolla teeth came from, its father, Angel's Exotic.  I sure whish my sense of smell was better because I would love to know if this bloom was fragrant or not.I decided to keep this one in my watch zone for 2012.

A new golden Angel Trumpet illuminates the midnight sky

I've had so many yellow/orange seedlings bloom this fall that it is really going to be a challenge to decide which ones are worthy of keeping.  Here is one I just placed in my watch zone.  It is from a cross I made between Brugmansia Angel's Moonlight and Bert.Here in Florida I feel it is very important to grow out any promising yellow/orange Angel Trumpet seedlings for at least a year before deciding if they are worthy of keeping.  Yellow and Orange cultivars are more susceptible to fungal ...
