I have several seedlings from a cross I made between Brugmansia Ludger's Windsong and (Color Point x Double Dark Rosetta) that have made it into my watch zone last year. Here is seedling #5, one that is getting closer to earning keeper status.
As you can see Ludger's Windsong had a strong influence on this seedling with its similar coloration and wild corolla teeth.
I'm really liking the looks of this one and anxious to see how it performs during our sauna like summer.

This one is a real beauty, but it has not been a prolific bloomer. I do not recall it throwing a single bloom this summer. Now that cooler weather is slowly inching in, I'm hoping it will start blooming again. I also plan to start a few new plants from it to see what they do. I've had numerous seedlings in my watch zone that just sit there, barely growing and blooming. I'll then start a few new plants from the mother plant and once they get established, they take off and grow and bloom like crazy. I hope that is the case form this one.
This is crucial and I hope that all successful hybridizers and seedling parents will do the same. I have done this very thing with a few of mine and discovered a dramatic change in bloom habits, color, size of flower, and even fragrance can change.
This is a stunner!
