Michigan Bulb Co. has a brugmansia that they say is 3 different colors in one plant? Is that right? Can that be? Any comments? Thank you.

3-in-1 Angel Trumpet

Hailing from South America, this is one of the most exotic and beautiful of the tender perennials. There is no sight more unforgettable than that of an Angel Trumpet heavy with blossoms releasing its intoxicating scent. Our 3-in-1 Angel Trumpet is spectacular with its branches layered in white, pink and yellow blossoms from spring through fall. Few container plants are easier to grow or more rewarding.

Here's another one of those.....it's just 3 plants in one pot...if you listen to this QVC video they slip that fact in there...so it's just 3 NOID'S in a pot....

Here is a link that might be useful: QVC 3 in 1 Brug

And my 2cents worth. They may not be 3 colors either. I bought one 4 years ago and the pink/red has yet to show it's face I got 2 yellows and a white. Beautiful flowers but no pink/red. I have the yellow and the white in the ground.
Noid single white

Someone on another forum said they had a larger screen sized television and you could tell that the flowers were fake. It makes sense because I was wondering how all those flowers were exactly the same size and shape. I think the orange looked too orange as well.

I have grown brugs in a pot together as well as three braided brugs together in a pot. It is hard to get them all to bloom at the same time and one will always try to get larger than the other two etc. The pot they had all those in was too small in my opinion to get that kind of blooming and bushiness on 3 brugmansia together.
Maybe if you put them in a half whiskey barrel and root pruned and fed them alot of bloom booster etc. you would have better luck.

I guess you could take three individual blooming plants out of thier pots and combine them and then take the film/photos lol.

I find it helpful to see a vendor advertise things that are not true. It makes it easy for me to throw their catalogue in the garbage can. LOL

PA, those flowers are bigger than your head! And I had fun visiting your album, what a gorgeous yard - more fun than a gardener can stand!
