What type of brugmansia is this?

I moved into a house with it growing in huge 15+ foot tall plant in Northern California. The house was built in the late 1960’s, the plant looks old. The flowers are yellowish to orangish. I just took about 50 cuttings, a couple weeks ago, that are show good growth.

Thank you!!!

If yours is an older or even somewhat older plant, then it is most likely either 'Charles Grimaldi' or 'Dr. Seuss' - they are virtually identical and even the experts really can't tell them apart (there was some speculation they are even the same plant). For many years those were the two most popular and wide spread commercially available yellow/oranges (color varying with temps).

Nowadays there are so many varieties of each color than many of them are identical or near enough to it that even having varieties side by side it can be difficult - if not impossible - to identify unknown or lost tag cultivars.
