#1: Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Charles Grimaldi')

@quietyard says, "The 'Charles Grimaldi' has done very well for me in Tucson, Arizona. The cuttings root easily in water and the plant grows quickly. It has a lovely scent."

@JJsgarden added, "'Charles Grimaldi' is a wonderfully fragrant, easy to grow Brugmansia. It is said to be a cross of
B. 'Dr. Seuss X B. 'Frosty Pink'."

#3: Angel's Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Miss Emily Mackenzie')

@gingin says, "This is a large single pink. She rarely if ever accepts pollen and sets a pod."

@Rhapsody616 added, "Very pretty large pink flowers."

#4: Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Dr. Seuss')

@ssgardener says, "This brug is supposed to have a nice scent, but I couldn't notice any scent at all. They may need to be more mature before the scent is noticeable. The blooms are huge and have a beautiful soft yellow color.

They don't like to dry out, but mine was planted in the ground in amended clay and required very little supplemental watering, even during a very hot and droughty summer. It was a small cutting that grew fast and bloomed beautifully starting in late summer. Unfortunately, I let it dry out too much over winter, which killed it, so I'll be trying it again with better winter care."

#5: Angel's Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Shredded White')

@Joy says, "In my climate Shredded White is the longest blooming brug I grow. It starts blooming in May and continues until the first frost. Blooms start out yellow, then turn white."

#7: Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Karoline')

@gone2seed says, "Kaitlyn and Karoline are pod siblings as well as being sisters in real life.They are an inbred downline (the plants,not the sisters) to get blooms as close to their parent Rothkirch as possible.I think they come pretty close.
Both are beautiful Aureas."

#8: Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Tropical Sunset')

@gingin says, "I have had much success with this brug. It is an older one and well worth having. Tropical sunset has been an "energized bunny" for me. The blooms are fairly large...the edges are a darker yellow. It seems to be more resistant to problems than some of the other yellows to oranges."

#9: Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Adeline')

@gingin says, "The blooms on Adeline are among the larger double pinks."

#10: Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia 'Becca Lynn')

@Joy says, "Becca Lynn is an extremely fragrant brug. The scent reminds me of baby powder, one of my favorite fragrances. However, of all the different Brugs I grow or have grown, Becca Lynn seems to have more problems with spider mites than any of the others."
