This new Angel Trumpet is on fire!

This Angel Trumpet seedling is a sibling to one I featured last month. It was placed in my watch zone last Spring and since then it has developed into a real gem.  The cross is Brugmansia Cassies Curls x (Ludger's Summer Dream x Creamsicle).The bloom on the left almost appears as if it is a dancing flame.  Another trait that I really like with these blooms is that the color extends all the way up the corolla tube.  I plan to continue to watch this one into the summer before deciding if it is ...

This Brugmansia seedling keeps wowing me

If I was to create a top ten list of Angel Trumpet seedlings currently in my watch zone, this one would be near the top of the list.  It is from a cross I made between Brugmansia Daydreams and Ludger's Windsong.During its recent flush of blooms it wowed me even more by having the inner corolla skirt turn orange, while the outer remained lemon yellow. The blooms were a real show stopper for sure. I'm super excited about the potential of this seedling, I have several seed pods growing from ...

A coily new Angel Trumpet seedling

Check out the wild and crazy look of this new Angel Trumpet seedling.  It is from a cross I made between Brugmansia Joli x Pink Charm.I'm not exactly sure where it got the spiraling corolla teeth from because neither parent has curly corolla teeth. I'll have to check out the Brugmansia family tree on ibrugs.com to see where they came from.This seedling has bloomed several times over the past 6 months and so far the coiling corolla teeth have been present in all the blooms.  That is great ...

Brugmansia Joli x Langenbuscher Garten

Here is a seedling from the reverse of the Brugmansia Langenbuscher Garten x Joli cross I showcased in my previous post. This time around Brugmansia Joli is the pod parent rather than the pollen donor. This Brugmansia Joli x Langenbuscher Garten seedling has a very simple form and the blooms are very thick in texture. The thick textured blooms and great parentage justify me keeping it around for a few more seasons. The blooms started out cream and picked up a slight apricot color around the ...

Brugmansia Langenbuscher Garten x Joli

My real job in the event business has kept me very busy the past couple of weeks, so I have not had time to show off some of my newest Angel Trumpet seedlings.  I'll start with this new seedling from a cross between Brugmansia Langenbuscher Garten x Joli that is currently in bloom.While the blooms are nice, currently they are really not special enough to convince me this one is going to be keeper.  It will be safe for another six months though because I crossed it back to its mother, ...

The pod keeper

Now that my Brugmansia seed pods are starting to ripen, it is time to enlist some friendly help to keep pests away.This friendly Anole appears to be quite happy on his new resting place.  Because Brugmansia seed pods are actually a fruit, they can be impacted by small beetles and tiny larvae while they are ripening. Both are great snacks for these guys!

Another beautiful Angel Trumpet seedling is earning keeper status

A Brugmansia Butterfly x Angels Exotic cross I made a couple of years ago has created many exciting seedlings.  Here's one that just came back into bloom. As you can see in the photo, this Angel Trumpet bloom is jumbo sized with great form.  Like most Brugmansia Angel's Exotic crosses in my collection, the pink color deepens as the blooms age.I like the wide-body look of the blooms,  A wide corolla tube helps keep the flower skirts from becoming stuffed inside.  Stuffed corolla skirts tend ...

A new Angel Trumpet with great color, form and substance

One of the more striking blooms appearing in my watch zone this week was this one on an Angel Trumpet seedling I carried over from last summer.  The cross is Brugmansia Cassies Curls x (Ludger's Summer Dream x Creamsicle).The blooms are thick textured with the deep orange color extending all the way up the corolla tube. The bloom form is simple with an inner skirt that is often split.  I have several seedlings from this same cross in my watch zone.  All have the same rich color, but with ...
