Desperately looking for Brugmansia ‘Bebe’

I know that this is not the appropriate Forum to post this request in, but I want to make sure as many people as possible see this request, so please excuse me doing so.

I know for sure that I had shared this brug with a person at BGI a few years ago. I am still waiting to hear back from them. I can’t remember if I shared it with anyone at ABADS or not. If you may happen to have it or know of anyone who does have it PLEASE let me know.

It is a very sentimental brug; I won’t go into details here and now. Thank you guys for taking the time to read this post.

Below is a face shot of the flower.

David, I never heard of your Bebe but wish you luck in locating it. Look at those cute pigtails!

RE: Desperately looking for Brugmansia ‘Bebe’

Brenda, thank you for taking the time out to respond to my post. She does have cute little pigtails doesn't she? That is the main attribute that I wanted to breed for with her. But if she is lost to the brug world we will not have her genes to work with.

It is so sad that we are always looking for the newest and best brug for our collection when there are many older cultivars that have nice attributes that we could use to breed into the newer brugs.

Also, please notice in the picture that she has deep sinus notches in the edge of the bloom. Arborea is one of the brugs that has this attribute.

I have tried emailing the person that I know had her last, but no response.

There may be a slight chance that I know of one other person who may have her. Say a little prayer for me please.
