Introducing Brugmansia 'Audrey Lea'

Named in memory of my mother

Brugmansia 'Audrey Lea' is the result of a cross I made between Brugmansia 'Butterfly' x 'Angels Exotic'.  Several seedlings from this cross ended up in my watch zone and this is the first one to be named.

The blooms are definately larger and more flouncy than those of Angel's Exotic and under the right conditions the blooms appear red. I feel this cultivar has great potential and I'm currently using it in my hybridizing program.

With such beautiful blooms, it was only fitting that I name this brugmansai seedling in memory of my mother.
