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.

'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'.

I love the color and scent of 'Charles Grimaldi,' but I must say that it is the least vigorous of all the brugs I've grown. All brugs are insect magnets and especially attractive to spider mites, but this one seems to decline the most quickly of all, and takes longest to rebound as well.

Don't recall where I got it or exactly when. I'm guessing 2006 or so.
MunchkinsMom On April 15, 2006 Transplanted
Planted in a pot at NW corner of deck. Roots eventually broke the pot and went into the ground. Dies to the ground every year, but bounces back about May or June and starts blooming late July or August.
