Cestrum & Chrissy. doing a aurea x. mix to create a perfect yellow that dose not change in different weather with a high gloss and very long tendrils would be great but hay another plant will do hahahah
But ill cross every thing with any thing, I did try Datura Lafleur lilac X.Brugmansia suaveolens 'White ruff' hahahha failed

The perfect flower would be a double or triple with white top 2 skirt and a bleeding heart Blood Red) 3rd skirt but not fully developed would be when i stop growing or collecting Brugmansia

Dianne i pick my anthers before the flower is fully opened but the pollen being fluffy or i Tie them up so that they don't get infected with other pollen (see pic attached) which makes them more fluffy, i also put them on a sheet of paper named and folede placed in a sealed container with silica gel Tablets which i bought about 4years ago from china, but i also use the packs from vitamin and medicine containers which i put in the vials in to to dry out a bit more before storing in the fridge

Colleen we cant get OS pollen in Australia as i know some people that have tries
