I've been watching this Angel Trumpet seedling for over a year and decided it is truly worth naming and registering. The cross is Brugmansia 'New Orleans Lady' x 'Marshmallow Sunset'.

I wish my sense of smell was better so i could tell if 'New Orleans Lady' passed on her fragrance genes, but I'll just have to wait until I have a visitor sniff it for me.

This seedling is currently being propagated so it should be readily available by summer.
