Brugmansia
‘Charles Grimaldi’

Brugmansia ‘Charles Grimaldi’ Brugmansia ‘Charles Grimaldi’

Unsurpassed for its wide ranging delicious fragrance & its almost continuous prolific bloom, ‘Charles Grimaldi’ is also the showiest of all Brugmansias. Easy & fast growing – reaching to 10’ tall its first year – it’s a marvelous choice for a small yard, especially when its sweet perfume wafts in through your doors & windows each evening. Huge, recurved & strongly reflexed trumpets start out soft yellow in color & age to gold. Can easily be trimmed to size or selectively prune out all but your favorite strongest branches for a more sophisticated appearance. Mr. Grimaldi loves moist, rich soil, so make sure you top-dress him with a layer of compost twice a year or leaves will turn yellowish. Underplant with a blue Hydrangea for color coordinated bliss! Hardy to 20-25 degrees.
