First blooms of the season on this one, sold as Brugmansia x insignis 'Pink'.
Does that look correct?

It is a beauty, but hard to tell. If it didn't come with a name, it remains a noid, (no identification) There are so many angels out there, it could be any one of them. I'm sure you're enjoying it even though you don't have a name for it.

"If it didn't come with a name, it remains a noid"

If you read the original post you will see that I wrote that I purchased it tagged.
It came with a name.

I have read many threads about plants being misnamed so was looking for confirmation that it was tagged correctly.

RE: Brugmansia x insignis 'Pink' ??

You are right about the name. It looks pink to me. I just didn't know that Pink was a name.

RE: Brugmansia x insignis 'Pink' ??

Sorry about that, you are right! If it comes with a name, it's most likely that plant. Guess I should have re read your post!

RE: Brugmansia x insignis 'Pink' ??

Technically, this plant does not have a name.
Brugmansia x Insignis Pink gives you it's breeding by saying the
Pod Parent was a (name) unknown "Brugmansia" and the
Pollen Parent was Insignis pink.
Any time you see an 'x' in a labeled Brugmansia it is giving you the parental info, not the name of that specific Brugmansia. All seeds from that particular seed pod ( there could be up to 100 seeds) would be labeled exactly the same unless someone had named (registered) one of the seedlings.
Nice, healthy looking plant and a good bargain!
