Brugmansia Orange Sunshine x New Orleans Lady

Here's a nice double white Angel Trumpet seedling that grabbed my attention the other day.  It is from a cross I made between Brugmansia Orange Sunshine x New Orleans Lady.I like the fact that it has nice separated skirts.  The blooms are also thicker in texture which helps them hold up better in our Florida heat. This seedling has gone through several bloom cycles and so far the blooms have remained snow white.  I feel this seedling is worthy of watching so I'm going to carry it over into ...

A double dose of lemon in a beautiful new Angel Trumpet

One of the more promising double yellow Angel Trumpets in my watch zone is this seedling from a cross I made between Brugmansia Lemon Twist x Lemon Meringue.The lemon yellow double blooms are medium in size and long lasting.So far the plant has remained compact and pest free.  I will be moving it up to a 10 gallon size pot soon and it will be interesting to see if the plant responds and grows taller, or if it will remain compact.Another great trait of this seedling is that the bloom color is ...

Mr. Toad on bug watch

This toad is the first line of defense against any creatures that may want to feast on this batch of recently sowed Brugmansia seeds.He has a confident "don't mess with me" look that is certain to scare unwanted visitors away.  My toad population appears to be rebounding this year so hopefully they will help me keep the snails under control this summer.

Birds gone wild....again!

The birds are out of control at my place this spring.  I left the windows down in my truck yesterday afternoon and evening and guess what I found this morning.....a half built birds nest!In that short period of time they managed to fill my ceiling console half full of leaves, moss and twigs.  An equal amount of debris were scattered on my seats and floor  Unlike the earlier nest that the birds constructed in my shade house, I had no problem getting rid of this one. :)

Angel Trumpet Pink Smitty x (Dark Rosetta x Super Pink)

Here's a nice double pink Angel Trumpet I've been watching for a couple of years now.  It is a seedling from a cross I made between Brugmansia Pink Smitty x (Dark Rosetta x Super Pink).The blooms have great form and substance, and have held up well in our Florida heat.  I especially like the long corolla tube and the fact that the corolla skirts are not stuffed.  Stuffed blooms struggle here during our hot steamy summers and often end up rotting in the center before they have a chance to ...

A golden Angel Trumpet with European roots

Here is a promising new seedling from a cross between two classic European Angel Trumpet plants. The cross is Brugmansia Joli x Langenbuscher Garten.In late March I featured another seedling from this same cross.  Although the blooms were single, they stood out because they were petite and very thick textured. The blooms on this seedling were not quite as small as those of its sibling, but they still were smaller than average. The blooms start out cream with a tinge of apricot, and then ...

An Angel Trumpet that's moving closer to becoming a keeper

I have been trialing this Angel Trumpet seedling for three years now and I have decided it is time to make it a keeper.  The cross is Brugmansia Mountain Treasure x American Pride.  The blooms have great form, maintain their rich yellow color, and hold up well in our Florida heat. Add that to a fast growing, relatively pest free plant, and you have the potential for a winner. I have several second generation seedlings growing from crosses I made with this plant.  They are nearing blooming ...

Angel Trumpet Genevieve x Rothkirch

Here's a nice double pink Angel Trumpet seedling that has been in my watch zone for a couple of years now.  The seedling is from a Brenda Delph cross of Brugmansia Genevieve x Rothkirch.I like the soft pink color of the blooms and the crazy corolla teeth. This seedling has been a consistent bloomer, always producing triple skirted blooms.The bloom color intensifies from what is shown in the photos. I took these photos when the blooms first opened.  Afterwards the blooms were sliced open for ...
