Brugmansia x cubensis 'Charles Grimaldi' (Angel's Trumpet)

Angel's Trumpet 'Charles Grimaldi'


Regarded as one of the most fragrant Brugmansias, Brugmansia x cubensis 'Charles Grimaldi' (Angel's Trumpet) is a vigorous tropical shrub or small tree laden with impressive quantities of exceptionally large, pendulous, trumpet-shaped, soft to golden yellow flowers, 15 in. long (37 cm), adorned with strongly recurved petals. Blooming from midsummer to fall, they actively open and close depending on the time of day. Sparkling against the foliage of large, toothed, fresh green leaves, the flowers exude a powerful fragrance in the evenings. This flowering shrub makes a large, dramatic, focal point. Easy and fast growing, this is also one of the showiest of all Brugmansias. Its beauty will bring you to your knees!

  • Grows up to 8-12 ft. tall (240-360 cm) and 6-12 ft. wide (180-360 cm).
  • A full sun lover, this plant is best grown in organically rich, moist, well-drained soils. Afternoon shade is appreciated in hot summer areas. Brugmansias are heavy feeders and need regular fertilization during the growing season to promote new growth and flowers.
  • In cool winter areas, grow outdoors in full sun after danger of frost is passed. Grow under glass in full light over winter with a minimum of 45-50°F (7-10°C). In warm winter areas, plant as a specimen. Perfect for beds and borders, Mediterranean gardens or containers.
  • Virtually disease free - watch for glasshouse red spider mite, glasshouse whitefly, thrips and mealybugs under glass.
  • All parts are highly toxic if ingested and sap may be an irritant
