a true vulcanicola hybrid
(Herrenhauser Gartens, Germany)
According to Dr. Preissel's book 
Brugmansia and Datura: Angel's Trumpets and Thorn Apples
some interesting notes about vulcanicola:

1-At its widest point the diameter of the corolla tube is 1 inch, barely the size of a finger.
2-Edge is barely rolled.
3-A pastel pink-flowered form exists. Only 2 plants have been found in La Cocha Lake in Colombia and they have violet colored calyxes.
4-The vulcanicola calyx is shiny and split 1-3 times. The peaks of the calyx often split again into smaller teeth.
5-Calyx often falls off while the fruit is developing
6-Fruits are wrinkled and warty
7-Vulcanicola is difficult to cultivate
8-Vulcanicola is endangered and rare.

None of these 3 pictures are the true vulcanicola but instead are sanguinea hybrids. We leave the names as they were received.
