Another golden Brugmansia moves to my watch zone

After a lull in blooms, mainly due to the summer heat, my Angel Trumpet seedlings are starting to set buds again!  Here is one that caught my attention this weekend.  It is a seedling from a cross I made between Brugmansia Angels Summerset x (Terri Schindler Shiavo x New Orleans Lady).The rich golden yellow color extends all the way up the corolla tube and the color was consistent through the life of the bloom. The blooms are average in size with good substance.The father of this seedling, ...

An Angel Trumpet to rival our summer sun

My previous post featured a seedling from a cross I made between Brugmansia Angels Goldface x Inca Sun. Here's an Angel Trumpet seedling I'm watching from a reverse of that same cross.  This is just one of several seedlings in my watch zone from a cross I made between Brugmansia Inca Sun x Angels Goldface.The bloom color starts out a deep yellow and ages to a rich orange. The blooms are similar in size to those of it's mother, Inca Sun.  I like the distinct trumpet shape of the bloom and the ...

This Brugmansia is a hand full of color

Here's one of my Angel Trumpet seedlings that has been a standout this summer.  It has been a prolific bloomer with thick textured, petite sized butter yellow blooms. The cross is Brugmansia Angels Goldface x Inca Sun.This is just one of many seedlings I have from this cross, and a reverse cross, Brugmansia 'Inca Sun' x 'Angels Goldface' that I have placed into my watch zone.  I still have at least 10 seedlings from those two crosses that have yet to bloom, and I'm certain a few of them will ...

A new variegated Brugmansia finally blooms

After at least three years and numerous near death experiences, this new, but unknown variegated Brugmansia finally bloomed.  It is unusual in that the bloom is pink, rather than the cream to apricot color normally found on this type of variegated Angel Trumpet.  Pink blooms are more commonly found on variegated brugmansia with more of a suave influence like 'Katrine Bonte'.The variegation on this seedling is a cream on green color, and the plant is on the smaller side.Don't expect to see ...

A new peachy double Brugmansia seedling

It is always rewarding to find a new double Angel Trumpet with a bloom color outside of the common color range expected in Brugmansia.  This Brugmansia seedling from a cross I made between Brugmansia 'Orange Zest' and 'White Magic' has a delicious peach/cantaloupe color not commonly found in a double bloom.The blooms are medium in size and hold up well in the heat.  The seedling is a vigorous grower and has remained pest free.  Brugmansia 'White Magic' is the father of this seedling and I ...

Angel Trumpet Brugmansia 'Orange Zest' x 'Bergische Symphonie'

Blooming for the first time this summer is this new Angel Trumpet seedling from a cross I made between Brugmansia 'Orange Zest' x 'Bergische Symphonie'. Brugmansia 'Orange Zest' is a Sommer Gardens introduction with medium sized single yellow/orange blooms.  Bergische Symphonie is a large flowered double pink European import.What impressed me most about this seedling is that it had a mini-flush of eight blooms for its first bloom cycle.  Also impressive was that the blooms held up very well ...

A deliciously fresh new Angel Trumpet

One of the more promising new Angel Trumpet seedlings to bloom this summer is this seedling from a cross I made between Brugmansia 'Angels Summerset' x 'Amber Glow'.I would describe its coloring as being deliciously fresh, starting out a pineapple yellow and slowly transforming into a tropical smoothie color a couple of days later.This seedling bloomed in less than one year from seed, and the plant is only three feet tall!  Both those traits combined with its beautiful blooms have earned it ...
