|I just noticed that totally purple trumpet blooming. Searching all over the place and can not find any total purple trumpets. the colors is the pics are not even as dark as the lily is...|
this does not look anything like Pink Perfection that is blooming next to it at all......
is there a purple trumpet out there??

|It looks like a dark Pink Perfection. Lucky you. I had one at one time. Pink Perfection could be a component of your trumpet mix.|

|I might just clone this lily|
never seen anything like it before......
Pink perfection is everywhere in the mix of trumpets
but this one is just Purple and no outside markings or anything
kinda stunned me when I went out tonight and it was blooming. The flower is a little smaller but it is going to get a second bloom by the looks of it too..

|well this sorta of puts a stop to the clone..lol|
apparently this is called a Midnight Trumpet ...and that is from the Lily Nook
researched the Midnight Trumpet and it is indeed purple
might see if it will cross with Regale though.............but likely would look more like Pink Perfection then

|I thougt I had seen one also. Went the TLG but they didn't have one. Glad someone found it. Trumpets don't seem to do well here.|

|Don't assume that all Midnights are dark... they too are a strain and often complained about.|

|really?? maybe should clone this one then and see ........|
so if you scale the bulb will they all be dark??
seems to be lots of strains in the trumpets by the sounds of it
I noticed quite a few of them are marked as strains

|There can never EVER be enough pink trumpet lilies. Love them!|

|If you scale the resulting bulbs are exactly as the original bulb.|

|good will do that then.......and scale this one.........|
not sure how long they will take to produce another flower but will scale some and try it
something new again for me to try
the biggest variety in shades is pink perfection here..........
all kinds of shades of pink
and some lighter and some dark........
