This is a cross of Brugmansia Sam x Kyle’s Giant White. If I had a better camera you could see the pink edges. This beautiful brugmansia decided to bloom on my birthday. I think it’s a great birthday present to myself. With its velvety texture, this bloom reminds me of a rose.
This hybridizing experiment was actually “practice” and my second cross ever. Since the first bloom opened in fall, I’ll probably have to wait until spring for the true colors. Wouldn’t it be nice if the edges turned out to be just slightly more pink with this buttery yellow? Then it would look like a Peace Rose.
Some brugmansias bloom a lighter shade in cool weather. Some bloom a darker shade than their natural color. Some stay the same. Angel’s Moonlight is a great example. Angel’s Moonlight’s colors range from pure white to yellow to orange.
