‘Charles Grimaldi’

Unsurpassed for its wide ranging delicious fragrance and its almost continuous prolific bloom, ‘Charles Grimaldi’ is also the showiest of all Brugmansias. Easy and 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 and windows each evening. Huge, recurved and strongly reflexed trumpets start out soft yellow in color and 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.
